Will this amp become the new budget king ?
It looks awesome, has lots of power and a built in DAC. Just incredible for the money.
How much money?
No signature worth mentioning...
I think it costs 400 pounds but I'm not sure.

Their new HIFI products are amazing and the A-9050 costs only $500 where I live and that's cheaper than both the Yamaha AS-500 and the Marantz PM6004 plus it has buit-in dac. Only wish they had been making them sooner. Expect fierce competition. I'm getting an A-9070 in a week. Tired of the Brio 3 and replacing it with 9070 beast. Four 15,000-microfarad capacitors and 1.2 mm thick copper bus plate. This thing is a TANK compared to my cheap Rega Brio 3.

Cypher, (or anyone else!),
Do you know if this is a class D switching amp or is it an 'old-fashioned' class AB amp. I can only see power quoted for 8ohms (75w) but no 4ohm figures? i have the 'budget' SACD player (another bargain, if you're asking) so this is does look promising!
PS Internet deal quoting price £349 !!!!
I don't know if it's a class D switching amp.
But as long as it sounds good, does it matter ?
I'm itching to get this. But there's no nearby stockist and so far no proper reviews I can find. Anyone got any experience of it yet?
Morning all - we have both the A-9030 and A-9050 in the building and both will reviewed imminently. The '9030 will actually be featuring in our Dec issue, so please keep your eyes peeled!

When the Onkyo A-9050 review can be expected? I can't wait to read it.
could this one be the 5* version with DAC and an even better partner than the 9030 for my 2010i's ?
Will it not just sound like the TX 8050?
