Pyle PFA100 30 Watt Class-T Hi-Fi Stereo Amplifier

I used the front mp3 port primarily. Any pressure on the cable would cause severe crackling. Eventually the device emitting a really terrible electronic burning smell and it stopped working. So before something worse happened, I trashed it.

Teac AI-501 DA-S Silber

We won't pretend the Teac AI-501DA is not expensive, because it is. Now, £700 is not too much money for such a high-quality system, but it is a lot of money for anyone to cough up. By the time you've added decent speakers and any other devices you're...

Grace Digital GDI-BTAR502

Unboxed it and wired it to my Ascend Acoustics HTM-200 speakers. I was able to pair via Bluetooth immediately, but then was distressed when the audio started to stutter and drop out when I moved a few feet away. It was then that I noticed I never...

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.

Harman-Kardon AVR 171

Harman/Kardon steps into the crowded, competitive midrange receiver market with the AVR 171, a product packed with compelling cutting-edge features and an impressive specification.

Grace Digital GDI-BTAR122

Works exactly as described. I'd like more nuance in the volume control, one click either way = too loud, too soft - but that problem can be handled with the volume control of the input device. Using it Bluetooth with iPhone and Android Tablet; and...

Pioneer SX-20-K

Basic model and at a good price. 2 loud speakers inputs are very practical if you need them. I recommend.

Pioneer VSX-823-K

The Pioneer VSX-823-K is a good deal for AirPlay fans looking for lots of HDMI connectivity, but it falls short on wireless features like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Belkin NFC Enabled HD Bluetooth Music Receiver

Let me first say how useful a Bluetooth receiver is, but then, if you're reading this, you probably know that. This one by Belkin is unfortunately not ready for prime time. I have both this one, and the smaller "non HD" version. While this "HD"...

Aluratek Bluetooth Audio Receiver

I work for Ready 2 Roll Pedicabs in Houston and use a speaker set to play music. My speaker set doesn't have Bluetooth so I bought these. As I roll all around the downtown streets, even in wide open areas, they work with almost no glitches. Sometimes I...

Pioneer VSX-S510

The idea of using class D amplification to reduce size and heat emission is very good. The sound is very good too. Minuses for no WiFi included (you have to buy an extra module), no 5.1 input, and a very oldish type of TV display interface. You could...

Pioneer Black 7.1 Channel Multi-Zone Networked AV Receiver - VSX-1023-K

I have a previous model Pioneer VSX-1020-k that failed after only 3 years. Read the negative reviews on that product before purchasing this. You'll realize that many users have no audio or system shutting down after a few years with terrible customer...

I bought this to avoid having to pay Charter cable $7.00 a month to rent one of their cable box's. Instead I pay $2.00 a month for a cable card, saving $5.00 a month. So, it will take me a little over 2 years to break even but in the meantime I have a...

Great cable. Love to watch video's that are recorded with my phone. Need to have if you want to share kid pics or other recorded content from your phone. One big draw back was that it needs to plug to a power source (USB) to work, but otherwise GREAT!
