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

I love this amp! This is about as simple as it gets but the sound quality is amazing and everything feels solid and durable. It reminds me of the old late 70s early 80s japanese amplifiers my dad had around the house when I was growing up which is a...

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...

Yamaha RX-V579

This unit has great sound. As far as the hook up's it wasn't as straight forward as the one i replaced, but it does sound much better.

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 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...

APPJ PA0901A mini tube amp NEW version Black tube amplifier

I have been involved in the hifi scene for over 20 years. This is the best hifi purchase I've ever made, my tannoy 15" speakers with a 96db sensitivity have never sounded so good. Very musical, especially in the treble and midrange where you find...

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

This is a versatile and powerful A/V receiver. Had to revise my original review that it didn't work after one month. I re-evalulated everything before sending unit in for service and low and behold it worked after all! My problem was probably due to...

Pioneer VSX-524-K

I believe this product is defective. After about 6 months of occasional use (3-5 hours a week) two out of the 4 HDMI connections have stopped transmitting sound to the speakers while the others remain working. No changes to use, same inputs I use...

Onkyo has long been known for having the most features for the money in their receiver offerings and the TX-NR717 and TX-NR818 receivers are no different. It is easy to get excited about the $1000 TX-NR717 until you see what the extra $200 for the...
