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...

FiiO G01

I bought this so that I could practice without waking my kids up. It works exactly how it claims, which is why I purchased it. The 1/8" input is a cool feature, very useful for playing along with a tune or putting on an internet metronome. It gets a...

Audioquest DragonFly

USB DACs are nothing new, but all the ones we’ve seen to date are less portable than the DragonFly, even though some are capable of producing excellent sound. It’s the simplicity of Audioquest’s design and its quality of sound that take the appeal of...

Onkyo TX-NR 3010

Onkyo is the quintessential feature-conscious audio/video receiver maker. The company is the champion of the mid-priced receiver, providing things like THX certification, Audyssey room correction, and other goodies at a poor man's price point. The...
