Yamaha AVENTAGE CX-A5000

When fed digital content, the Yamaha CX-A5000 sounds much better than my Marantz preamp. The differences between the two are not subtle at all, and the use of the ESS SABRE DAC seems to have really paid off in the design. There is more clarity and...

One complaint: The LED lighting is too bright. Wish it was only one LED but it looks like there are 2-3 backlighting this device. I'm using this with the USB AC Infinity dual 80mm fans along with 1 Coolerguys 120mm fan. I had the Coolerguys USB Fan...

NAD C390DD: Sound quality But how does it sound? Well, for a smidge over £2000, pretty good. It’s precise and detailed, offering good scale and plenty of sonic authority. By the highest standards, though, it’s not as expressive or rhythmically adept as...

Pioneer SC-95 AV receiver

Needed a receiver for my home entertainment system that would allow for three zones. House that we bought was pre-wired for three zones and needed a receiver that could handle that. This receiver works well and the Pioneer App allows for easy control...

Pyle PP444 audio amplifier

Easy hook-up. But, with volume up, there was some 60HZ hum. I haven't yet hooked up the ground. I hope the hum goes away when I do. The hum is low and only noticeable with no music and volume set high. This may be normal from stray pickups.

Marantz PM-11S3

Review: The Marantz PM-11S3 Integrated Amplifier is rated at 100 watts/channel. It exceeds its specifications and sounds and looks great doing it. A true audiophile product with prideful ownership.

Marantz PM6005

I was quite pleased with the performance of both the amp and CD player, although I would hope that Marantz would consider adding FLAC playback in their next update of the player. Although the omission of this feature may be a deciding factor for some...

Yamaha RX-A740 AVENTAGE home theater receiver

The unit itself was recommended by the local Magnolia professional at my BB. I was in the market for a dual zone, Bluetooth and WiFi capable receiver that could really deliver crisp clear notes through my various zones and also be somewhat easy to use,...

Yamaha RX-V577 RX-V

For the price you wont go wrong. I didnt notice any extreme overheating. But to prevent this this I always place two large computer tower case fans over any receiver I purchase.

YAQIN CD3 6N8P Stereo Tube Audio Upgrade Tube Buffer Processor

Trade out the Chinese 6SN7's for any vintage NOS or a pair of new Tung-Sol's and hear the magic of tubes on any amplifier, receiver, etc. Great for use between a preamp / source / DAC and a headphone amplifier!
