Chris, London Classical music lover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
A very very good hi-fi system for the price. Sound quality is very good; perhaps a little too processed for my taste but with enough soul in the music to overcome that. Otherwise would get 10 for sound. I have heard much much worse smoothing of the music on other hi-fi systems and it drives my KEF speakers very well.
Vocals are excellent; handles a wide range of music well but seems to have affinity for jazz and classical
Has connectors for digital sound from TV, and for tape deck, phono, ipod and more.
Good DAB; remote is easy to use
It's a mini system, which is what I needed to replace my existing Denon, which didn't have DAB or a digital connection for TV sound.
Very solidly built on whole
Very good value for money at the price and I am pleased with it - it gives me the quality of music that I wanted, lets me use all my music sources and DAB is excellent. Tuning was very straightforward as was setting up preset stations.
Very worthwhile if you want a small hi-fi system and need connection to turntable and tape deck, which music streamers and all in one systems don't have. This was the only model on the market that met all my specifications in one system.
Bad points:
Manual could be a bit clearer about inputs - I had to phone supplier to check a couple of points, to install rooftop aerial and tape deck.
Shiny silver buttons a bit garish.
CD tray is a bit flimsy especially for something of this build quality.
No internet radio but that's being very picky and I didn't expect there would be.

HiFi Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The PHA-1045 gives you the quality of separate components plus the space-saving convenience of a mini system.

On the playback side, the CD player employs high-quality Wolfson® DACs to get the most out of your CDs and MP3- or WMA-encoded discs.

Complementing that is a handy front-side USB port on the matching receiver, which offers easy playback of iPhone/iPod and flash memory devices. Of course, the receiver’s main job is to amplify your favorite music.

It does this with panache, thanks to an advanced design that incorporates Onkyo’s precision-engineered VLSC™ technology.
