Marantz MM8077

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...

Denon AVR-X4000

The Denon AVR-X4000 AV Receiver is more than worthy successor to the AVR-3313CI. We review a lot of receivers, but rarely come across one we like this much. Read on to see why we're such fans.

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-V675

Yamaha's RX-V475 is a great-sounding 5.1 receiver and a good value, although competitors offer better features and design.

Rotel’s reputation for delivering high-end audio at a reasonable price is safe, thanks to the RA-1570. What’s more, this is an integrated amplifier that meets the needs of the modern listener, and does it with impeccable style. In a world that is...

Google Android 4.4 KitKat

Google Android 4.4 builds on the success of Jelly Bean with KitKat, a powerful mobile operating system that makes up for its lack of candy coating with a solid framework. You can look forward to always listening Google Now, a new dialer that brings the...

Yamaha RX-S600

Priced at $650, the Yamaha RX-S600 slimline A/V receiver can fit where others don't. Does this half pint have what it takes to measure up to the big boys? Keep reading to see what we think.

Pioneer VSX-528

We like this amp. It doesn’t offer the final word in sound or specs, but it does occupy a comfortable spot in the middle ground.

Onkyo TX-NR929 B Schwarz

Onkyo's TX-NR929 is not one of the brand's heavyweight offerings, but this well-priced receiver – it now sells for around £1,000, after initially launching at nearer £1,500 – packs enough performance and feature tricks to comfortably drive and tune...

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....

Yamaha RX-A1020

We like this new trend in receivers. Rather than doling out features as the price going up, we are seeing features hitting lower price points and the number and types of connections increasing with price. The Aventage line from Yamaha has been popular...

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...

Marantz SR6008

The Marantz SR5008, SR6008, and SR7008 receivers are straight up audiophile products, but lack some of the features that make other AV receivers so compelling. Here's how we think they stack up.

Onkyo TX-NR818
