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 RXA860

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.

Yamaha RX-A660

I bought the RXA-660 to replace a Sony STR-DA5200ES now that I wanted to move towards HDMI audio, 4k etc. I was dubious as I'd had one attempt at replacing that amp with a cheaper Sony model a couple of years ago and wasn't pleased with the result...

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...

Okay, so five stars because of the price. You can get cheaper via China and other online buyers but I am (not just because of the price) forced to write a positive review. I normally leave negative ones on items that don't seem right, so here is the...

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!

I returned a brand new Onkyo receiver that had a host of problems and replaced it with the VSX-90. Outstanding decision, everything just works! And the audio and video quality are exemplary. The only feature the VSX-90 lacks that the Onkyo purported to...

Cambridge Audio AZUR 851W

For some folks, receivers are great; for others, it’s a dirty word. If you fall into the latter camp, Cambridge Audio’s Azur 851E and 851W might be right up your alley. Naturally, offerings of this caliber aren’t inexpensive, though we wouldn’t qualify...
