I replaced a 10 year old Denon receiver with this model because I was having trouble with one of the surround channels. I have a 7.1 setup up with large speakers and this model was recommended by an associate in the store. It was also appealing because...

Pioneer - 1155W 7.2-Ch. 4K Ultra HD and 3D Pass-Through A/V Home Theater...

Nice amp. Plenty features. But why Pioneer chose not to include Zone 2 is a mystery to me. It was included on the vsx-1124-k unit that is supposedly last year's model. Had to pull this unit and return due to every manufacturer reserving Zone 2 for...

Sony UDA-1 S

Product used to be amazing for use with my 2013 iMac - until I installed El Capitan. Now, the sound skips for about 20 seconds initially before completely cutting out. This problem is not limited to this DAC, it seems to be present with most USB audio...

Price is kinda high but saved a hundred bucks off X-mas deal. Upgrading from a 1403 so I'm familiar with the product. Also had an entry Yamaha 471. Between the two the Marantz sounds better (more musical & clean). Yamaha has more oomphed. My remote...

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...

Onkyo TX-SR444

This is a great unit, great sound, easy to use, good set of options. But there is one thing that doesn't work for me. The USB power is not working with my iPhone 5 (nor my wife's iPhone 5). I have both original and aftermarket cables, none work. Then I...

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...

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...

Sony SRSX3 Portable Wireless Speaker - Black

With comparably good sound for its size and the addition of speakerphone features, the Sony SRS-X3 mini Bluetooth speaker measures up well against the pricier Bose SoundLink Mini.
