Topping TP22 TK2050 (TC2000/TP2050) Class T Digital Mini Amplifier 30WPC

AmazonBasics Bluetooth Audio Receiver

Works seamlessly, plugged into video input on an old Sony HiFi. Connecting is very quick and the product gives a reassuring beep. Only criticism is that there's no on/off button on the actual device, meaning if you want to turn it off you have to...

Onkyo TX-SR343

I purchased my first Onkyo receiver in 2007 which finally needed replacing. It was just an all-in-one consumer kit, but I was starting to wonder on my hearing as I kept cranking up the volume. It's been a nice improvement to connect all sources to this...

Marantz SR6009

I have rated this unit lower because of a significant service issue. Overall, the unit performs very well - good sound, relatively easy to set up, etc. Until I ran into this service issue, I would have ranked the unit at 4.5 or above However, I...

Yamaha A-S301

The yamaha as-301 is an awesome amplifier for people with low budget. The phono input is decent and much better than other amplifiers in the same price range, many inout choices although no hdmi. In terms of power the yamaha can easily drive demanding...

Yamaha RX-V775

Some people like Onkyo's, some others prefer Pioneer or Denon. People with money to burn buy VERY expensive receivers. I've always gone for Yamaha. Subtle black box that does it all for me. The "Silent Cinema" DSP is superb. I only use headphones. This...

Yamaha RX-V577 7.2-channel Wi-Fi Network AV Receiver

So overall I've been happy with this receiver... But not without some frustrations. The original one I got had an issue where it would just power off randomly and go into a system protection mode that had to be reset. Amazon was great about replacing...

FiiO Q1 Portable USB DAC and Headphone Amplifier (Black)

This is one awesome bit of kit. I had got a pair of Beyerdynamic DT990 250ohm headphones to use with my Onkyo home cinema amp for late night listening. They sounded great but when I tried them with my Linx or Nexus tablets the audio level was too low...

Onkyo TX-8160

Great stereo receiver. Not designed for home theater work, but does have HDMI inputs for your tv, gaming system, etc. Integrated phono amp if you plan on hooking up a turntable (make sure you get a MM cartridge). Best features: Wireless antennae built...

Denon AVR-X4100W

A cursory glance might suggest that the AVR-X4100W looks like any other receiver released from the Denon stable over the past decade. However, that notion couldn't be further from the truth. While the basic form factor promises comfy familiarity,...

Yamaha RX-V777BT

I bought this receiver because it specifically says and still says it supports 4K inputs. The bottom line is it does not because any current 4K content requires HDCP 2.2 compliant hardware and this is not. Any reference to supporting 4K should be...
