Onkyo has been in the news a lot lately and while normally one would think that this is another one of their many receivers, these latest products are new components which you can actually add to these said receivers. The products in focus are an amplifier and a CD deck.
The two units are the amplifier (A-5BL) and an accompanying CD deck (C-S5VL). According to Onkyo, they’re hoping that as consumers be more wary about splashing cash on big ticket items like a new car, holiday or kitchen, they won’t mind redirecting that cash to home audio gear instead. We suppose that assumption goes both ways – as long as Onkyo keeps their devices affordable without compromising on quality, folks wouIdn’t mind forking out some extra dough for it.
Prices are expected to remain below ?500 when these are released.
