5 out of 5 "R-05 / PS-05U"
I buy it in 1991 when I have 20 years old ... ;-)

This system still follow me since... on my desk !

I never had a best quality for normal use. In fact, this analogical system it's perfect with the 80w power !!! Who need more everyday in a normal room !!!?

I buy it on the PCS-05 system. It came from the R-05 and the PS-05U speakers... and with the double auto-reverse cassette tape K-05W and the compact disc player C-05.

Ok forget the tape... ;-) And the compact disc which was always out of order cause of dust !

The sound of this system (R-05 + PS-05U) is the better in this range of product !

I also have some studio speaker (Focal, KRK, Alesis, Behringer... ), but for the final cut it will always with this amplifier and those speaker that I make my choice !

The best quality of the components explain everything when Onkyo want to get part of the market.

I wrote this testimony for two reason.

1 / I want to buy an other system in case of...

2/ I want to share my extraordinary experience since 24 years.

And 3/ because there are always a third part ;-) .... When a company give you this kind of product it deserve it.
