Lexicon RV8

Lexicon's RV-8 is a literal monument to home theater receiver performance and functionality. It's also one of those products that could take up a week's worth of your time (or more), should you wish to take advantage of and optimize every one of its...

Harman/kardon DPR 1005

This review brings together two brands that are special to me: Harman/Kardon and Paradigm. When I was a teenager, I bought a Harman receiver with the money I earned running deliveries for the local supermarket. You know how that is: Nothing ever gets...

PrimaLuna Prologue One

In the end, you can substitute some spendy NOS tubes and ultra zooty cables to get more sound out of the ProLogue One, but for $1095 I would just make it the cornerstone of a really musical three-to-four-thousand-dollar music system. Go to www.nobel.no...

Marshall [ValveState II Series] VS230R Stereo Chorus [1996-2000]

I bought this guitar in a shop in Singapore in 1998 for about 300 USD. I have used this amp now for gigging/home/recording for five years now, and it has not let me down once. The amp was released under Marshall's 'Valvestate II' techlonology range....

Sony STR DA2000ES

I spent alot of time reading reviews of 7.1 recievers.This one had issues with supposed hiss. I auditioned several other brands and decided the Sony price point was worth taking a chance on. I'm a music nut and cannot hear any hiss. I'm extremely...

Pioneer VSX 49TX

With some receivers, you're in trouble a day after you think you've got a handle on them; with others, even with instructions in hand, you stumble. Not so with the VSX-49TX, despite its seemingly endless versatility. What the Pioneer has going for it...

Musical-Fidelity X150

Turn the volume knob, and you get the feeling of solid quality. This compact, 220mm-wide amplifier concentrates on its primary task - the reproduction of music - with no unnecessary functions, just three line-level inputs, plus one for a turntable (m-m) a

Creek A50iR

Not an amp to party with, perhaps, but if you can see the attraction in a warm and inviting amp sound that rewards prolonged listening without ever making the sort of demands that might make you tire of it, then the A50iR has plenty going for it.

Yamaha RX-V340

I bought the HTR 5630 even though I could find no other detailed user review on the net. I assumed that the 5400 and 5500 series were getting good reivews and there were NO bad comments abou the 5600 series I might as well give it a try. This is my...

I am by no strech of the imagination, an audiophile...but I feel that I really got my money's worth with this receiver! Probably more receiver than I will ever need, but I won't have to upgrade any time soon! For the price ($120.00--shipping included),...

AudioSource AMPTHREE Power Amplifier

When my Adcom GFA-545 died, I was shocked to see the prices for the new Adcom amps. I decided to take a chance on the AMP3 and am very satisfied with the sound and apparent quality of the AMP3. I had a simple question for tech support and was able to...

Musical Fidelity A3.2

On the other hand, if you're not a bass-head and prize musicality in the midrange above all, I'd happily steer you back this way.

Onkyo TX-SR800

This is an awesome Reciever. The person who rated this with only two stars has no idea how to test a reciever of this caliber. I used a 7.1 channel Cambridge Soundworks speaker system to test this monster(T500's), also compaired it against a real...

JVC RX 7020VBK

The receiver works great with DVD players. We set ours up to a JVC TV and a JVC DVD player and with the push of the button the whole system comes on. The only problem that I had with it was that it didn't have a A/B switch on it for the speakers. Other...

Teac AGD 9100

I bought this receiver for $250.00 (CND) at a costco surplus store in 2002. I am not sure what year this model was made, but it has mostly worked. Good sound for what it cost, but in the next few years I was seeing Sonys with S-Video and Component...

Looking for a inexpensive yet great sounding surrond receiver? This is it! Just enough bells and whistles that makes it useful, but not too much that won't be used or confusing to use. Does the job and does it well.
