Now coming to the MM8077, the power section of the combo, it features Marantz’s unique current feedback discrete power amp output stages that are identical for all channels. What helps the entire output stage is the multiple high current discrete power...

Arcam FMJ A19

Arcam's FMJ A19 shouldn't be used for driving loads much below 6 ohms at high levels, but that is a sensible compromise made to keep its price affordable. Other than that caveat, the A19's measured performance is excellent.

Denon AVR-X3000 Schwarz

With receivers this powerful, it is nearly impossible to list all their features in such a short article (lucky for you that we have a full review of the AVR-X4000 in the works finished!). The takeaway you might get from this is that the new IN-Command...

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...

Marantz PM6005

I was quite pleased with the performance of both the amp and CD player, although I would hope that Marantz would consider adding FLAC playback in their next update of the player. Although the omission of this feature may be a deciding factor for some...

Onkyo TX-NR5010

The big selling point of the Onkyo flagship TX-NR5010 is 11.4 channel DTS Neo:X support. While it can only power nine of those channels, if you are shelling out $3000 for a receiver, we're guessing you have a few external amps lying around somewhere....

Pioneer SC-1223 K

For a mid-priced home theatre receiver, the Pioneer SC-1223 is pretty impressive. I'd prefer it to have multiple subwoofer crossover frequencies, but aside from that the audio performance could not be faulted. The video processing is excellent. The...

Onkyo TX-NR818

Onkyo TX-NR616

The Onkyo TX-NR616 is a tremendous AV receiver value, with eight HDMI inputs and a very low street price, although Onkyo's step-down models may be an even better buy.
