Denon AVR-X4100W IN-Command 7.2 channel Dolby Atmos receiver

Just Awesome! This receiver has a ton of features. It does get a little warm, but I can handle that. Dolby ATMOS... Price point on this receiver/you can't beat it. This is a winner...

SMSL SD793-II PCM1793 DIR9001 DAC Digital Audio Decoder amplifier - Black

Does exactly what I want! I've been using this so that I can have a headphone jack for my Amazon FireTV and it works great. Sounds great too. One of the best priced DACs I've seen.

What a great buy. Bought this to replace an earlier Cambridge Audio amp which gave up after 12 years daily use. Plenty of power for the money and superb sound quality

APPJ PA0901A EL84+12AX7 Mini tube Amplifier ( Original miniwatt N3 ) Silver

The openness of tubes, but lacking in the "balls" (authority) of say my McIntosh Mc225. Still, a nice way to soften near field digital listening with efficient speakers. Runs hot, price certainly fair.

Marantz SR7008

The Marantz SR7008 receiver is very much a case of evolution rather than revolution, providing refinements and improvements over last year’s flagship model without making any radical changes. The big differences are the addition of two extra channels...

It's fine but the volume is not as good as I had hoped it would be. I use it in the iPod adaptor for the nose soundlink and it works for my iPhone 5.

Sony STR-DH750

Awesome receiver for the price. I wanted a bluetooth receiver for the garage, and this is way more than I expected. Bluetooth, USB plug in and even an app to control receiver from your phone or tablet! It's great!

Yamaha RX-A1040BL

Seemingly more interested in sound effects than anything else, this box was a pain in the neck, so I returned it. Note the remote has print on the tiny buttons which you surely won't be able to read and aren't backlit. Poorly done overall.

Yamaha R-N500

Yamaha is really trying to woo not only the budding audiophile but those two-channel fanatics that would usually buy a surround sound receiver. The R-N500 ticks all the right boxes. It is compatible with FLAC/WAV 192 kHz / 24-bit encoded music, can...
