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.

Yamaha RX-A3010

While we tend to prefer a slightly warmer sound to Yamaha’s slight briskness, we have no doubt the Yamaha RX-A3010 receiver will find loads of fans who enjoy its lively, up-close approach.

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.

SMSL SA50 50WX2 TDA7492 Class T Amp Integrated Tripath Stereo Amplifier Black

This unit feels very sturdy and well put together. I bought it to power 2 Micca MB42X Bookshelf Speakers and it seems to be doing a good job. I'm not an audiophile but it seems to be doing exactly what is was meant to do. I do recommend it if you are...

Awful. Really buggy software, audio cuts out for second very frequently, audio doesn't match up with conversation on TV, iPhone app frequently disconnects requiring that I unplug the power cable from the unit and do a total reboot. I cannot warn you...

Pioneer Elite SC-87 9.2 channel Dolby Atmos receiver

Upgraded from the SC-77 for two reasons - support for 5.1 flac playback over the network and the new subwoofer features in MCACC Pro. The unit does indeed play the 5.1 flacs. Its DLNA player implementation seems to work great. Its Renderer...

My second tripath amplifier (now have one in kitchen, one in dining room) and both are very good but the TP22 has a bit more output. Maybe with top-notch speakers and source you could be picky about the quality (or maybe not ?), but for my purposes...

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

Bought this amp to replace outdated one to power my Bose outdoor speakers. Great sound and enough power to listen at any sound level. I have 2 sets of speakers so the a/b switch was a must have.

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.

Rocketfish™ - Bluetooth Music Receiver - Black RF-BTR315

It says 50 feet but it's more like 15 feet if you don't want interference and crackling. It says 50 feet on the box but maybe in an open air place with no walls and 0 interference from anything. Not worth 50. I could wire it from the distance it...

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.
