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.

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...

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...

Chord Electronics Hugo Portable DAC and Amplifier

I wish I had read the review on here from about a year ago before buying this in store (returned it but it was hassle) . I don't know why that reviewer got flack and was told it was an unfair review. I found the same thing. In my case I asked the...

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...

Denon AVR-S510BT

Refurbished product appears and operates as-new. Handles input from my 1080p HTPC and 2160p from my Nvidia Shield perfectly and reliably routes it nicely to my TV. Plenty of power for my speaker setup. The calibration microphone gave me reliable tuning...

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,...
