Onkyo A-9010 (UK) Stereo Integrated Amplifier
The latest addition to Onkyo's Pure Hi-Fi lineup, the affordable A-9010 Integrated Stereo Amplifier was tuned in the UK with specially modified circuitries and four audio-grade capacitors to deliver the warm, full-bodied sound European listeners prefer.
A large transformer, discrete amplifier output stage, and unique high-current, low impedance circuitry enables precise control of the speaker drivers with minimal distortion, while a thick extruded aluminum heat sink keeps everything running cool. Other inclusions such as the MM phono stage, independent headphone amplifier, gold-plated speaker posts, and chunky knobs for volume, tone, and input selection reflect the quality of the product and add an appealing touch of vintage charm. If you’re looking for a sweet-sounding amp that will get the most out of your LPs and CDs without breaking the bank, the A-9010 is very much worth an audition.
Authentic High-Fidelity Amplification System
When it comes to sound quality, amperage (current) is more important than having loads of watts. Onkyo's unique Wide Range Amplifier Technology (WRAT) uses high current flow to maintain precise control of the speaker drivers at all times. This ensures accurate and dynamic audio reproduction—from delicate piano passages to an orchestra in full flight—even when the speaker impedance drops and increases the load on the receiver. To achieve this, the A-9010 features a high-output transformer and four audio-grade capacitors with an extruded aluminum heat sink to keep the amps running cool. The amplifier circuits feature discrete low-impedance output transistors for instantaneous power and low distortion, while closed ground loop circuits help to minimize electrical noise. Furthermore, amplifier circuitry and other electronic components were fine-tuned by our engineers in the UK to add a sense of warmth and body to vocals and other instruments. Together, these technologies deliver engaging sound whatever your source.
Enjoy Pure Analog Playback of Vinyl Records
Unlike many stereo amps at this price, the A-9010 features a built-in MM phono stage and phono inputs so you can connect a turntable and enjoy your record collection with pure and dynamic analog performance. Sounding rich and lush—but not at the expense of detail—the A-9010 is an excellent place to start your love affair with vinyl records.
Connect All Your Gear
On the rear panel you’ll find four pairs of RCA analog audio inputs and one output. That’s more than enough to connect the CD player, tuner, or cassette deck you have already. There’s also a 3.5 mm analog input on the front panel that makes it easy to hook up your phone or tablet and get the tunes happening in moments.
Separate Headphone Amplification Circuitry
Live it up even when you’re told to keep it down. The A-9010 includes an independent headphone amplifier powerful enough to drive high-impedance headphones with a sound signature that’s clear and detailed. Also included is a proper 6.3 mm headphone input for a safe and secure connection to your headphones.
Better Construction Equals Better Performance
The A-9010’s chassis is designed to isolate the audio signal from vibrations that cause interference during the amplification process. Other appealing points include gold-plated, banana-plug-compatible speaker posts with transparent screw-type knobs. These speaker terminals are connected to the amp circuitry via thick speaker plates rather than speaker relays to preserve signal integrity and improve resultant sound quality. Aesthetically, the A-9010 pleases every sense, with sweet proportions and classic metal knobs for the major controls that look and feel like they belong on a more expensive amplifier.
