Onkyo Debuts Cool Retro Style Audio Gear

 |  |  |  |  January 4, 2011


I was a child of the 80’s, so I tend to remember all the weird stuff we had back them. The bright colors, questionable wardrobes, and gigantic electronics of the period are what I grew up with. Onkyo has unveiled a new line of audio gear that includes a range of audio components that has some retro 80’s style.

The only one of the new components that really looks like the 80’s I remember is the M-5000R amp with the big analog gauges on the front. My dad had a stereo with some gages like that on the front when I was a kid. Onkyo is showing of the M-5000R amp, the P-3000R pre-amp, and the C-7000R CD player at CES.

The gear from Onkyo has high-end features like DIDRC works to improve sound quality. The P-3000R preamp has AES/EBU digital connectors and USB inputs for PC audio. It also has a Burr-Brown DA and more. The M5000R amp has 8-ohm FTC rating and 80W of power per channel with a dynamic power rating of over 450W into 1 ohm. The C-7000R CD player is a high-end device as well with a silent disc mechanist and die-cast aluminum tray. The P-3000R sells for $1699, the M-5000R sells for $2499, and the C-7000R sells for $1499.
