Onkyo TX LR552

With the Panasonic sa-xr55 going for under two hundred fifty bucks and the new xr57 going for about three hundred, this receiver (which offers almost-as-good sound quality though fewer features and less power) would only be worth buying if you can get...

Denon AVR-X1100W

This lets you stream music from your phone and directly access Spotify right from the receiver, rather than streaming through a phone or tablet. The Denon AVR-X1100W will be out in July 2014, and seems like a worthwhile update of the X1000, especially...

Marantz SR-68 Receivers

I picked this up for $80 at a local flea market. I'm sure I over paid by today's going rate for this era amp, but I took a gamble on the Marantz name alone. Short story, I'm not disappointed at all. This was money well spent. I have it paired with an...

Pro-Ject Audio - Phono Box USB - MM/MC Phono preamp with line & USB outputs...

Works pretty well, haven't tried using the moving coil mode yet, maybe someday I'll own a MC cartridge. The USB was simple to use on Windows 8. It's nice and heavy and stays put when all the wires are hooked up to it.

ART Phantom II Pro

This unit does just what I needed. I use it for overhead mics on my drums and other mics in my home studio. The right item at the right price and quality that I needed. Couldn't be more pleased.

Vincent SP-998

I was fortunate to purchase the Vincent SP-998 mono blocks brand new for half retail Aus$3,000 (RRP $6,000). These are easily worth double there full retail price. They are the best Power Amps I have heard in over 40 years of audio.

The setup wasn't a deal breaker for me since i did research prior and was fully aware of having to use component cables. I can see someone being very upset if they setup everything w/ HDMI and then realized you had to use component cables. Plus that...

Adcom GFA-545MKII Amplifiers

Have two of these that I bought used and recapped. They push four 10" DVC subwoofers @ 8ohms. They both sounded great when I bought them but I wanted to be sure they would have enough umph for subs. I also have a GFA-2535 that I use to drive 1" silk...

T23527 Verbatim 96665 Wireless Multimedia Keyboard And Mouse Combo Mfr P/N...

This set is exactly what I wanted, the keyboard layout is good for multimedia. The only cons is the lack of led, they are replaced by a piece of software that displays the keys status on screen. This takes off one star for this otherwise great product.

NAD 216THX Amplifiers

Hello, I'm using this amp with some older Magnepan MGIIIa's. It drives them very well and with great authority. The sound is very "tubey" sounding to me. I really like it. It puts me in almost a trance of sorts. It allows me to melt into the music and...

Peavey PV 2600

I have 4 of them and use them in a restaurant bar setting and they work great. For installs with long runs to speakers the PV 2600 is much better than PV1500.
