Onkyo HT-R2295 7.1-Channel Home Theater Receiver with USB for iPod/iPhone

I purchased this unit from another retailer on January 2, 2014. On February 22, 2014 the first sign of screen flicker appeared. These issues are well documented by other Onkyo owners on the web. Simply do a Google search like ( Onkyo screen Flicker )....

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...

Bought this to power my klipsch speakers. Couldn't be happier with it. The set up took some time for me as I am no expert but none the less I figured it out. Movies sound awesome.

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-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-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...

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....

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.

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...
