Marantz 1060

I now have the dream system of my youth in 1975! Back then I spent my money on speakers and bought a pair of used KEF 104s at $250 each. About half new price. I still have those speakers and only needed to replace the grills.

Cambridge CXA60

We purchased this about a month ago now to compliment our Project Carbon turntable and our Dali Zensor 3 speakers. On reading up on the speakers and amplifier, it was suggested that there is a 'bedding in' period for both items, so decided to wait...

Yamaha RXV683 (Black)

Bought this together with Monitor Audio Mass 5.1 and my movie watching and music listening experiences have completely changed. Watching blu-rays with quality sound has become such a joy as now I can hear every little detail in the soundtrack....

Arcam A39

It's been six weeks since purchase, enough time to form a considered opinion. This replaced my ageing Arcam Alpha 9 which was bi-amped with the 9P and gave many years of pleasure. I was going to get the small fault in the Alpha 9 repaired but decided...

Antennas Direct CDA4

I contacted Antennas Direct, told them where I live, that I wanted to mount the antenna in my attic, and send the signal to three locations in my home and provided them with approximate distances to each TV. They recommended this amplifier and their...

Yamaha RXV383 (Black)

What a fantastic entry level amp. I couldn't believe the sound the first time around just blown away. I though this may of been a down grade from my much more expensive onkyo amp, but iv been proven wrong. I didn't think it would have enough power for...

Hegel has made a name for themselves with their standalone integrated amps, amplifiers, and DACs. The H80 takes some of the top integrated amp, pre-amp, and DAC technology and puts it into one box.

I bought this last week, display model, and spent an entire weekend trying to get some sound out of it. After some telephone support from the very helpful guys at Richersounds and Yamaha, I eventually got sound via bluetooth, but audio and video were 3...

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.

Denon DHT-T110

Ease to set up. Auto start and shut down function is a great idea. The only drawback is not the units fault and that is different quality of sound from TV channels, however there is a compensation in the different modes available in the unit.

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.

I bought the Denon to replace a (not so) old Yamaha which had developed a fault. Based on the reviews it appeared to be the best one to suit my requirements. I am not disappointed. The sound quality from the Denon is a significant improvement with...

Cambridge Audio AZUR 851W

Review: Cambridge Audio's Azur 851E Preamp and 851W Stereo Power Amplifier aren't inexpensive, but unlike flagship level products from other marques, they're actually affordable. Audiophile Separates.
