Onkyo Intec 275 Series Pictorial Review

Rate this question

Question

Part I

----------- Onkyo Intec 275 Series (Silver version) -----------

intec275series001ld8.th.jpg

Short Comments :

The Intec 275 Series is not sold in Europe. In fact, the Audio amplifier, the CD Player and the AM/FM Tuner are available but under a different reference (PHA-933). Being only available in Japan, the Hi-Md deck (MD-133) has been imported.

----------- A-933 (Audio amplifier) -----------

intec275series008ik6.th.jpg intec275series007cs7.th.jpg intec275series009kk2.th.jpg intec275series011gk6.th.jpg intec275series010zw8.th.jpg

Short Comments :

For its size, the A-933 is really heavy and sweats quality. The front side of the unit presents a hidden door with many features behind such as superbass / bass / treble and speakers selection fonctions, a phones input (etc.). On the back side, one can regret the absence of optical input and output. The (big and awful) remote can control every elements of the Intec 275 Series.

----------- C-733 (CD Player) -----------

Short Comments :

The C-733 and the A-933 share the same size (but fortunatly not the same weight). Large display. No remote control.

Open/close, play / Pause / stop and FF / FR fonctions on the front side. There is a display button as well.

Two optical outputs on the back side.

Part II

----------- MD-133 (Hi-MD Deck) -----------

Short Comments :

Rec and editing features on the front side. Play / Stop / Pause, FF and FR buttons. Two optical inputs on the back side (TOS link provided).

There is a jogdial as well. Large display.

The size of the remote sold with the MD-133 make it more friendly and easy to use compared to the one sold with the A-933.

(Many thanks to Wizard of Oz for the TI-352 transformer :) )

----------- T-433 (Tuner AM/FM) -----------

Short Comments :

The T-433 and the MD-133 share the same size. Timer, Band and Tunning / Preset fonctions on the front side.

No remote control. RDS compatibility.

Part III

----------- Onkyo D-302E (Loudspeaker) -----------

intec275series049xi1.th.jpg

intec275series051nn4.th.jpg intec275series053xq3.th.jpg intec275series058el2.th.jpg intec275series061dc7.th.jpg

Short Comments :

Very heavy, the building quality is excellent. I find the D-302E really gorgeous without their foam protections. They are sold with a pair of Monster Cable (XP series).

Sound quality :

Pretty difficult to say as they still require a burn-in period. On the top of that, I still have the sound of a 150.000 euros speakers system in mind (the Focal - JM Lab Grande Utopia were presented by a Hi-Fi store next to my place last week :P ) The treble and the middle range are improving CDs after CDs, MDs after MDs, and seem to have a good potential (refined sound). Bass are deep which is really surprising for that size of speakers.

La classe. smile.gif Vraiment.

Grave. Et les D-303E sonnent de mieux en mieux. Elles sont comparables aux JMR Cantabile Signature, un référence coutant 4 fois le prix des Onkyo et vers lesquelles je lorgnais au départ. Aucun regret concernant le format bibliothèque. Merci d'ailleurs car sans toi, je ne me serais jamais tourné vers ces enceintes. Dommage que tu n'ai pu faire un arrêt chez moi ;)

It took me some time to get this series because of its price but I'm really enjoying it at the moment, no doubt it will satisfy my needs ;)

Could you try taking one picture of all of them stacked together?

I planned to do it but I've to make a remodeling of my living room today. I will try to complete my first posts with new pictures when it will be done.

Picutres of my system after a slight living-room remodeling. Vogel's equipment will be bought next month to hide wires.

I know you will get lots of enjoyment from yours

Take care,

Bob

Hi all,

After a long use, i'm still in love with my equipment.

I moved to a new place some times ago and installed the Intec in a larger room. Despite those new conditions, the amp was powerfull enough to make the whole thing sound good.

I learn that the MD-133 has been recently discontinued by Onkyo which is a pitty. Fortunatly, mine is still in great shape and is playing discs every week.
