Orb Audio Mini-T Amplifier V2

Definitely not in love with this unit. I may have gotten a dud. Its a typical el cheapo "Class T" amp. Its only remotely distinguishing features are a semi interesting industrial design, and a subwoofer LFE port. Other than that, its bargain basement....

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...

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...

GOgroove FlexSMART X3

I own a older vehicle that has low mileage and a great sound system, but lacks input jacks for blue tooth music devices. I researched my options at the sound shops, but found that it would cost over $2000 to replace my existing car stereo. My brother...

Marantz M-CR510

I’m a real sucker for these sorts of systems and a lot ofsolid AV companies are starting to make them (or at least refresh their current offerings, as is the case here). I already mentioned Denon andOnkyo, but Yamaha has their TSXand MCRlineups as...

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...

For Yamaha’s best performance and value under $1,000, these receivers are the way to go.

Sony Xperia M C1905 Black (Factory Unlocked) 4GB , 4 inch , 3G 900/2100mhz

There is a bit of fading around the edges of the case but for the price this is minor! Otherwise very happy with my purchase and looking forward to adding more of these to my collection

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.

Denon AVR-E200 E

This unit has been great, everything I wanted in a basic HDMI switcher. Unfortunately the volume control on the remote is WAAAAY too sensitive. You can either click one at a time to reduce the volume soooo slooowwwlly, or else you can press and hold it...

Onkyo TX-NR1009

We've been mighty impressed with the recent offerings from Onkyo but we have to say that the TX-NR1009 has left is a little underwhelmed. When you compare it to the Onkyo TX-NR809, you have to look pretty hard to see where your extra $200 is going....

Pioneer VSX-822-K

REMOTE CONTROL I am not a big fan of this controller. It has far too many little buttons spread all across the surface of it and takes a long time getting used to it. Its range is reasonable and I didn’t have too much of a problem with it. I guess if...

Denon AVR-E300 E

I tried Two Sony receivers on stereo the other 7.1 as well as a Pioneer unit I got over at wally-world. However, none of the units would do a multi channel stereo correctly. The Denon while not perfect does give the rear speakers in a Multi stereo mode...

I've read both good and bad reviews on Pyle amps. Decided to purchase this model and run 4 JBL 6 1/2's and a 10" Pyle sub off from it in my 1990 Mastercraft Prostar 190. With gains less than half, and running directly from a iPhone 5, this things...

Yamaha HTR 6250

The Yamaha HTR-6250BL works well as part of the Yamaha YHT-791 home theater system, but it doesn't fare as well when compared with other standalone AV receivers.
