Yamaha RX 777

I feel I must respond to the other,bizarre review of the RX77. I am using the unit now with 2 speakers and find it to be one of the best,unadorned stereo receivers around. The sound on any of my cds is full and detailed. I listen mostly to...

Lehmann Black Cube Linear

A detail obsessive And it is detail obsessive, digging up a huge amount and arranging it into a cohesive and convincing whole.

Harman/kardon AVR 8000

Where's the first place you look when you saddle up to the bar at your favorite watering hole? Some may say the waitress station or the sorority party in the back room; but, when it's time for business, you look at the top shelf. For it's in that...

Plinius CD-LAD Preamplifiers

I've had a lot of gear in and out over the years, this pre is a real gem amongst them. I bought the MK1 model and upgraded it to the latest revisions (small revisions to both line and power stages)

Cyrus 7

Brought this second hand in 2003 for 200 pound UK. It currently drives a pair of Celestion A1's and source is normally a Cyrus DVD8 used as a CD player. DVD8 sounds amazing with CD's - better than my Sony CDP-XB920 which is no slouch itself.

Denon AVR-685S 6.1 Channel Surround Sound Home Theater Receiver

[..]The receiver plays back a wonderful spectrum of sound, and the 32-bit processor is fabulous. The highs are perfectly clear--yet non-obtrusive--and with this receiver I was finally able to get rid of "tinny" or overly "bright" sound in my...

Sony TAE-1 Preamplifiers

I bought this preamp in 2003, I paid 6000 euros for it, its constrution is only comparable to the very best, but despite this, I mainly use my TA-N(80ES gold, because the latter sounds better to me with my power amplifiers, maybe this is a question of...

Klegg M6 501

This bad boy blows away my prior surround sound rack. It is unbelievable how good the sound is from these little egg like speakers. I only bought this on a friends insistence (she's an audio freak)and am kicking myself for not buying it sooner. I was...

Rotel RA 972

I bought this Rotel integrated amp in 2001 at a high-end audio store in L.A. It was a brand new design and the salesmen were really pushing it. I was thinking I needed a 100 watt per channel amp. This one was rated 60 watts per channel. I told them I...

Sherwood R-965

This is a tricky one for me, the 965 tries to have all the right gadgetry to keep up with the Joneses, but falls short on several counts and it also is the most non-user friendly AV receiver I have come across so far. Conversely, the sound is very,...

Plinius 9200

Sonically, the 9200 is much like an 8200, only fully matured. It's less brash tonally and more harmonically rich. Its overall tonal character is slightly darker than its forerunner, but only to the extent that it has become the least colored version of...

Onkyo TX SR502S

I got this receiver for christmas, and I must say, it is great!! I got it as an upgrade over a JVC 6020v (100w x 5), and this Onkyo's 75 high current amps blow the JVC away! I was debating whether to get this or the Sony STR-DE697, and with features,...
