Pioneer Elite Sc-75

Sound is amazing, but half the features are either difficult to use, or don't function as advertised. I spent far too much time getting it on WiFi network. It's better just to hardwire and move on. The remote app for the phone doesn't seem to work well...

Yamaha RX-A1040BL

A great unit, but Yamaha could have done a much better job with the documentation. Very little setup information, but it was enough to get started. However if you wanted to setup some things it was necessary to use the manual. Unfortunately the manual...

Yamaha RX-A1020

We like this new trend in receivers. Rather than doling out features as the price going up, we are seeing features hitting lower price points and the number and types of connections increasing with price. The Aventage line from Yamaha has been popular...

Insignia NS-R2000

Basic receiver but it works wonderfully. The Bluetooth feature for me has been flawless. My mini ipad and the receivers Bluetooth sensed each other in less than 15 seconds. I got decent range in a 3 story house, about 30 feet, sometimes more. The...

Yamaha RX-V479BL 5.1-Channel Wi-Fi Network AV Receiver with Bluetooth

Excellent sound and solid build. Easy setup with good on-screen controls. Connected to large Klipsch fronts and small Bose rears. Plenty of power for a 400 square foot room. The internet connectivity feature is worth every penny. Pandora works so well...

Topping TP22 Tripath TK2050 Class-T T-AMP 2*30W Digital Power Stereo...

I bought the Topping TP22 amp to replace an SMSL SA-50 that had become faulty. The topping is not an amp for driving big speakers or for high volumes, but as an amplifier for driving bookshelf speakers at reasonable volumes it is excellent. It loses a...

Inateck® Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Audio Receiver, Universal Music Adapter...

Works great, mostly. The device goes to sleep after just 20-30 seconds of silence, and because it's not earthed, this makes the amp hum really, really loudly and obnoxiously whenever there's no music playing. That's pretty annoying, but otherwise can't...

This receiver arrived quickly and is packed in a small plastic box with instructions written on the back. It turned an excellent but underused JBL sound box with it's 30 pin ipod dock into a wireless speaker. Effectively, it worked straight out of the...

Insignia™ - 200W 2.0-Ch. Stereo Receiver NS-STR514

Is missing that extra boom in your sound. My shelf stereo system was able to elevate the speakers outdoors, where as this component could not meet up to the challenge.

I have the older model speaker dock and this made it work great with my Samsung Note. I am so thrilled I could still use this speaker because of this product.

Denon AVR-S500BT 5.2 channel home theater receiver

I set it up with miss matched speakers and it still sounds good and the kids figured it out how to work it in a week. Don't be afraid to read the manual if you still want to look good for the kids.

Denon AVR-S900W 7.2 channel home theater receiver

Great Receiver! Streams ITunes from my pc. Great sound. Flexible setups. I don't mind the UI but imagine that there are some people who would prefer something easier. I would recommend this to a friend not my parents.

Topping TP22 TK2050 (TC2000/TP2050) Class T Digital Mini Amplifier 30WPC

I have struggled with an amp to drive my deck speakers. The first two burned up. Then I got an old Crown PA amp off eBay. It bit the dust. Now this baby just works. I leave it on all the time, at max volume, and drive it with a Belkin Bluetooth HD...

Dayton DTA-1 Class T Digital Amplifier 15 WPC

Sounds really outstanding. And I consider my standards fairly high. I use this as an amp for a pair of moderately nice, $100-ish, bookshelf speakers in my bedroom. I always love the sound. Granted - I'm not running a loud dance party off of this amp....

Denon AVR-S910W 7.2-Channel Network AV Receiver (Black)

Replaced my Onkyo with the Denon. It has great sound and my picture quality actually got a little better. I will say that the set up is a bit tedious. It took me some time to get the crossovers and eq set to make it really kick out good sound.
