RE: Onkyo TA-2000

I did once. It was an okay, but not spectacular deck. Makes a good starter or supplemental deck. But I wouldn't use it as a primary. Probably the biggest thing I disliked about it was the chassis was very, very loud. Stopping from any active play mode and it came with a hard, metallic "clunk" that just seemed too loud. I also don't like the segmentation of the meters. Too few of them. Consequently getting good precise readings was hit-or-miss at best.

I ended up abandoning that deck years ago when I moved out from one apartment to another. I didn't feel it worthy of the trouble it would've been to transport it.

If the deck is cosmetically clean and works, I'd say go for it. But if anything is wrong with it at all, I'd pass. A totally unremarkable deck.
