TX-8255 front


High Fidelity Stereo Receiver.

This finely sculpted stereo receiver delivers two channels of audio precision to entertainment spaces where you don’t need advanced video processing or multichannel audio.


Honoring the Fundamentals of Pure Stereo Sound

If you want your receiver to focus purely on two-channel audio, the TX-8255 could be just the answer. It’s perfect for your living room, or anywhere else you like to sit back and soak up your music. The TX-8255’s rock-solid construction incorporates a heavy-duty extruded aluminum heat sink to ensure cooler operation. The whole unit is housed in a rigid, reinforced chassis —finished off with a hairline-brushed aluminum front panel— to help eliminate vibrations. Add compatibility with RI dock for the iPod®, and you have a superb stereo solution that brings out the power and dynamism of your audio sources.
