Onkyo A-9010

Conceived in Japan and tuned in the UK, the A-9010 is an integrated stereo amplifier designed to deliver the "warm, full-bodied sound" that pleases European ears. But the real story here is price – at an affordable £199, you can experience your...

Denon IN-Command AVR-X6200W

This is most likely not the place to write an extensive A/V revue, all I will say is that I replaced the AVR 4520 with this one and it is a whole world of step-up. People looking into this receiver know their thing, this is why I only insist on very...

Mark Levinson No 585

Let me go ahead and state that the No585 is the best sounding integrated amplifier I have ever had in my system and quite possibly the best I have ever heard anywhere at anytime.

Onkyo TX-RZ800

It sounds delectable with high-res audio sources – although prefers unplugged to unleashed – and with DTS:X compatibility to complement Dolby Atmos promised, plus wide HDCP 2.2 HDMI input support, it’s not going to date any time soon. Give it a listen.

Pioneer SC-LX58

To sum up, we love the Pioneer SC-LX58. What’s not to like? Pioneer has taken last year’s champ and made it even better. Admittedly it’s not a massive leap over the SC-LX57, whose owners shouldn’t feel the need to upgrade straight away. But if you’re...

Yamaha RX-A2050

By far the best receiver I have ever owned, every feature you could ask for. Took about forty five minutes to get completely setup. Dolby Atmos was difficult to figure out but that was more due to me not putting the ps4 onto bitstream from the playback...

That's neither here nor there. For all the important functions, it's hard to see how the Denon AVR-X7200W (A, when it comes) can be surpassed.
