Sony STRDN850 - 1050W 7.2-Ch. Network-Ready 4K Ultra HD and 3D Pass-Through...

I was a little apprehensive purchasing the STRDN850, due to some of the reviews. I am now on a fixed income and can not afford to waste my money on things that do not work...I didn't. Everything works great. Pairing of our devices were ridiculously...

AmazonBasics Bluetooth Audio Receiver

It works and is quite small and cute. The pairing button is rather nasty. The biggest weakness is that despite being Bluetooth 4.0 and using a CSR chipset, this device doesn't appear to support the aptX CODEC. Shame the product specification doesn't...

Bluetooth A2dp Music Audio Receiver Adapter for Bose Sounddock and 30-pin...

This small adapter connected immediately to my iPod touch as well as to my iPad Air 2 and old iPad 2. My old Bose SoundDock has a 30-pin connector and my new iPod/iPad lightening ports could not connect without a clumsy apple-made adapter. Now, I can...

APPJ PA0901A EL84+12AX7 Mini tube Amplifier ( Original miniwatt N3 ) Black

Given the size and price of this amp, I wasn't sure what to expect so I did as much research as I could. Reviews are reasonably favourable and it seems like this amp is the successor to the originally popular Miniwatt amp which had an output of 2.5W...

Pioneer - 700W 5.2-Ch. 4K Ultra HD and 3D Pass-Through A/V Home Theater...

This receiver works really well! I had my doubts at first because after running the automatic setup process I was getting zero bass going to my subwoofer and couldn't figure out true surround sound, only extended stereo. Once I figured out how to fix...

Yamaha A-S701

I bought this on a whim to compare to my Rotel separates. I was thinking about simplifying my system. The Yamaha made a very compelling argument. The sound was a bit more forward than my Rotel which I enjoyed for the short time I had it in my set up....

Onkyo A-9030

Still, this is a very fine stereo amp. It’s fun to listen to, and that counts for a lot at this, or any other, price level.

Sony Black 7.2 Channel AV Receiver - STR-DH740

This Receiver is AMAZING. Purchased this earlier this week and finally received it yesterday evening and was able to do basic setup just to get sound out of it and it was alright to say the least as I couldn't go through the proper setup (only had one...

Sony Bluetooth Music Receiver with 100 metre range and aptX Audio Enhancement...

Good device when it works. Connecting proved difficult as the device did not appear to be recognised as a Bluetooth device by most other devices but with a little perseverance it worked out in the end. Reception falters at times but difficult to blame...

Tons of features and audio settings but I prefer a slightly more warm sound like Denon.

Sony STR-DH130

Great for powering a couple of pairs of speakers for my porch. Sounds great with mini Advent indoor / outdoor speakers attached. Plenty of power for casual listening.

HD Frequency Cable Cutter Indoor/Outdoor HD Digital TV Antenna (CC-17)

We live in a 150-year-old historic home with solid brick load-bearing walls throughout. The walls are about a foot thick. Before 2005 when the switch was made from analog to digital, we had good TV reception throughout the house. Afterward, we tried...

Marantz SR6007

If you’re in the market for a performance-oriented receiver at around $1,200, the Marantz SR6007 should be at the top of your list.

Roku LT

Let’s start out with getting the negatives out of the way then such as mot having advanced networking settings. This was a major let down for me in truth, I have a Sky Broadband service and they don’t (stupidly) allow you to change the DNS settings....

Denon AVR-E400

Had it for two months. So far so good. I'm not the most tech savvy so it may take a while before I can say everything works.

If you're like me, you opted for the GDI-IRCA700 because of: a.) The remote control. b.) A dedicated appliance for internet radio. c.) The large TFT screen, to treat you to album artwork and additional details. CON: --Screen and icon quality make me...
