Bluetooth Audio Receiver

I bought this as a replacement for one that I broke (be careful how you handle the Bose when it is on the 31-pin mount!). It has good sound quality and surprising range.

Pioneer HTP-072

This system offers affordability and one box convenience with a sound quality I would expect in this price range. The HTP-072 simply does not have near the sound quality or features of more expensive components. But its audio is a big improvement over...

Denon AVR-X1100W

Purchased this receiver due to ex-husband taking our Pioneer. I wasn't complaining because the Pioneer continually had issues. Chose the equivalent Denon because of reviews. This has been the best purchase since the divorce!!! I didn't hook it up but i...

Yamaha RX-V473

The Yamaha RX-V473 is a serviceable 5.1 AV receiver, but given that it has only four HDMI inputs, competing models offer a better value.

Yamaha R-S300

I just got into 2 Channel audio this past year and at this point I'm not looking to invest too much $$$ in this hobby. I'm not a big sterophile but I care about sound quality and out of the multiple units I have tried and tested this is the best bang...

Compared to an average $20-30 alarm clock, this is a very good radio. Of course you are paying quite a bit more for this. Pros: Well built. It has some weight to it, and should last a very long time Clear sound. The speakers give nice very nice clear...

Pioneer VSX-323-K Schwarz

I bought what I thought was a good receiver, well at just past the 3 year mark, the power supply makes the receiver constantly turn on and off, rendering it useless. After speaking with Pioneer several times, since it's no longer warranted, they sent...

Media sharing device black, POGO-P22

Work fine but is slow. Access from remote site is painfully slow but possible. It may depend on your internet caches both sites. Sometimes it doesn't respond but overall work rather fine for small files, not a real NAS.

Peachtree Audio Nova

It's a little weird to me that the Peachtree Audio nova220SE integrated amplifier doesn't have more competition. Because for me, for my money and my listening pleasure, this is pretty much everything I could want in a two-channel audio system:...

Just picked this up over the weekend and paired it with some Klipsch Reference R15 M bookshelf speakers. Best buy had a great deal on these speakers for black Friday. I was not expecting B&W type sounds from them, but they are very impressive when...

This amplifier is super and delivery was fast and well packaged! I love it. It plays beautifully and seems solid and well designed. I was surprised at the weight of it. The power and output transformers are good size. You can't beat this amplifier for...

Creek Evolution 50A

The amplifier sounds incredible, I switched from my 20 year old EAR859 tube amp. If I had to criticize, I'd say the bass can be a little slow, especially on fast transients, it sometimes lacks attack. The remote control doesn't power on/off the amp and...

Yamaha R-S500

This is a well made, good value, mature stereo receiver. If this is what you need then, I think you'll be happy with it. Even though I've released 2 iOS apps to locate radio stations, I don't listen to a lot of radio. I must say, however, this receiver...

Onkyo TX-NR5009

The Onkyo TX-NR5009 is a true top-tier AV receiver. For those in the high-end receiver market, it is one to seriously consider. The remote is by far the best universal remote I have ever had included with any product I have reviewed. It was so...

R/T 324-10 Dual 10" Slot Vented Enclosure

Not bad! Got it in a few days and exactly like described. Has a weird smell but it's wearing off now after using for about a week. I would recommend to someone.

Onkyo TX-NR609

The Onkyo TX-NR609 has six HDMI inputs and lots of built-in streaming music services, but it lacks AirPlay and doesn't sound quite as good to our ears as some competitors.

Roku 2 XS 1080p Streaming Player - Manufacturer Refurbished

In the past, I may have only recommended the Roku box to aging family members with less-than-perfect eyesight. Those boxes were easy to use, but the picture was standard-definition quality at best.
