JUSTOP BTR008 Bluetooth Stereo Audio Receiver With Built-in Microphone...

3 stars or 4? I like this little gadget and when it works it performs well and sounds fine with my Sennheiser headphones. BUT just having the one button on the front isn't really working for me - is it on or off? Only seems to pair with one item at a...

Yamaha RX-A730 Schwarz

I have been using a Yamaha receiver for years. I just purchased a Sony W850 series LED TV and wanted to upgrade to a new receiver. I researched many and again settled on the Yamaha for the best in class audio. No disappointment here. The product is...

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...

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-1020

Six HDMI inputs, easy iPod connectivity, and sweet sound quality make the Pioneer VSX-1020-K an excellent midrange AV receiver, although it's missing some minor HDMI features.

Sony STR-DN1000

The Sony STR-DN1000 offers solid sound and basic AV receiver features at a bargain price, but it's not nearly as good as last year's STR-DG920.

Pioneer VSX-1021

Pioneer's VSX-1012-K is an excellent AV receiver with built-in AirPlay and top-notch sound quality, but Denon's AVR-1912 is just a little better.

Pioneer VSX-S510

The size of this receiver was a major factor in buying it. I had been using a Yamaha receiver that was 2 to 3 times taller than this but wanted something I could fit in a shelf below the TV - this is about 85mm tall which is great for that. There are...

Samsung GX-SM530CF Cable Box and Streaming Media Player with Built-In Wi-Fi

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...

Harman-Kardon AVR 370

Whether you’re playing music or movies, the Harman Kardon AVR 370 could do with a touch more refinement and subtlety across its performance. It’s a fun, easy going sound, but it doesn’t deliver the outright excitement and immersion needed to enjoy 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!

Roku 4200XB

As some others experienced, my refurb unit initially came with the wrong power supply. Unlike the others, I made a few short phone calls, got Roku customer service on the line and they sent me the correct power supply right away.

Sony STR-DE197 2 CH Receiver

Sony's STR-DH700 is an inexpensive 7.1 AV receiver, but its lackluster sound and dearth of features make it tough to recommend.

This is an e-reader. Only use it as such. Or mod it to be a gameboy or something. Just save your money, unless you want to please a bratty kid or something.
