    Default Where can I find Onkyo products?

    Hi and I know there is a very seasoned group of audiophiles here.

    Planning to get a simple mini hifi for my room, nothing fanciful. I've reading a bit (just) and finally decided to move away from my usual layman common sense to get a Sony or Pioneer. Onkyo seems like a decent one and within my budget, i.e. between $400 to $500(?).

    Where can I find them? Looking forward to try them ... by the way, any other recommendations? Please go easy on me ; most of the discussions which I've read so far have been really chim to me ...

    TIA!

    You may want to try this:

    Denon, Yamaha and Marantz make mini compos as well

    Adelphi, Audio House are places to go and check out, as well as Sim Lim Sq.

    Cheers

    if i remember correctly Best at Taka oso have a few models.

    another good brand that is their rival is Denon, other way, do head down to Adelphi for betta speaker cables to bring out the sound a notch or 2. 2x2meters budget about $30-$40.

    den BlueTack

    under the speakers for betta isolation. 3 each speaker.

    Wah ... this is getting poisonous!

    I guess I may have to stretch my budget a bit; I'm actually eyeing an Onkyo CS-525 for now ...

    Hi Adam,

    Well, that should be a good Buy(as it's the newer model now), cos I'm using the previous model Onkyo CR-515 for my bedroom and this model if I remember correctly(correct me if wrong) received some good Awards on the Sound-Qualityand it after some 'running-in'Especially those fine/subtle musical details whereby normal/common or even more costly mini-system won't be able to hear it). You'll be able to add-on(if you want)a subwoofer, and the overall soundstage is so rather big and open = hear it to believe.

    Pardon me, the Onkyo system you guys mentioned above, is it only speakers or complete systems? I dont know how to mix and match different components, so a complete system will be useful.

    Hi ... it's a complete system but if you're game for mix and match, I'm sure you'll get plenty of advice here!

    There is already a thread on mini compos:
    http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=453667


    Audio House is a lousy place for TVs and be careful when shopping for audio stuff...

    Look here for prices and Panasonic tips:

    Thanks Pete, in fact I've been following the threads for some time and I know that you've doing a great job as a mod there.

    I guess I have to get them seperately ... you got any recommendation on where I should get my Onkyo set? Hope to get some reliable service and good price too! TIA!

    Sorry bro
    I don't have too many comments on minis, if you can stretch it and function matter more than style, get seperates, eg a simple Marantz amp / CD player + speakers will be around 1k.

    Also see xtremeplace for comments on the Denon DAB M 37, for 699.

    BTW if you are not in a hurry, go for the kill for plasmas at the IT show, stay tuned, I may want to get a MO going there as I need to replace a set for my dad.

    D-Day H Hour on the last day of the show.

    Cheers

    Thanks again for the heads-up Pete. The Denon model which you mentioned is comparable in terms of the features I'm looking for ... it even got DAB!

    I'm not rushing to get a plasma yet and I'd love to join you guys to chiong the ultimate deal for the IT Show but I'd be in S. Korea then. Maybe I can get my bro to help ...

    By the way just called Everjoint and they quoted me S$2195 with free Panasonic BD30 which I don't really fancy. I rather have the NTUC voucher and bid my time as I wait for the Oppo BDP-83 ...

    Hi people,

    Just came back from Adelphi ... couldn't track down the CS-525 but HN @ Harvey Norman is offering it @ S$599 and it comes with DAB. I tried looking for DAB M37 but no luck as well ... one salesguy told me only Audio House has the exclusive rights to sell it, sheesh ...
