Yamaha AVENTAGE CX-A5000

Suddenly the ESS SABRE DAC is showing up everywhere. At first it was only in high-end audio products like the Oppo BDP-95 and BDP-105 Blu-ray players. Now we have seen it in the Pioneer SC-79 receiver and in a pair of SSPs (Surround Sound Processors):...

Pioneer SC-LX57K

Pioneer has done it again. The SC-LX57 builds upon its predecessor’s success to deliver an even better balanced and more thrilling sound. The Pioneer has once again set the bar for rival manufacturers. It’s a truly fine achievement.

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...

Pioneer VSX-923

AVR manufacturers are obsessed with matching their TV counterparts and introducing a gamut of new models each year, despite bona fide audio developments being few and far between. As such, Pioneer's VSX-923 represents a revamp of the VSX-922 (itself a...

Denon AVR-X2000

Is $200 worth two additional channels of amplification, 4k upconversion, a component video input, and extra HDMI input, and a few other odds and ends? We think for many consumers it will be. If you have no need of seven channels or video upconversion,...

Sony STR-DN1040

At the end of my time with the Sony STR-DN1040 I am surprised and happy by what I found. More and more of the content we consume comes from a smartphone, tablet, or computer. Getting it from there to your AV system is not nearly as easy as it could be....

Roku Streaming Stick

For all of its acclaims, the one thing that makes us cautious about recommending it is the $50 sticker price attached to it. Even though it costs half as much to pick up compared to the Roku 3, the $50 cost is still higher than that of its main rivals....

NAD D3020

If it isn't already obvious, I was supremely impressed by the D 3020. Its ability to drive a pair of large four-ohm speakers as stoutly as a 75-pound Emotiva amplifier is nothing short of astounding. It may only be rated at 30 watts per channel but it...
