VR-305

The Kenwood VR-305 is a great surround sound receiver for the home. Easy to plug up, easy to use. Wat shocked me most was the price. For 200 bucks you get a top of the line surround theatre system by electronics giant Kenwood. We have one at our house....

Exposure 3010

The rich and creamy sound will appeal, but the 3010 can be beaten for pure clarity

NAIM NAC-152XS

When combined with the NAC 152 XS preamp, ticks many of the boxes but doesn't have the wow factor needed to achieve five-star status

MRP-F300 Car Amplifier

I am driving pair of polk 6501 compnents in the front, polk mm1040 sub in a bridge mode. It is powerful enough for my setup, key speakers have excellent sensitivity. I could'nt be happier for the price. I was short on budget else would choose PDX Series

Ematic - 7 inch Tablet with 8GB Memory FTABCP2

This is a great tablet for a child. We bought it for our daughters 4th birthday because she love to play games, etc on our phones. The only thing this unit is lacking is the Google play app store which I am still trying to figure out how to install....

Arcam FMJ AVR450

When it comes to crafting AVRs, Arcam is very much from the old school. It's more concerned with the purity of performance than the number of logos on the box, an ethos that has earned it audiophile adoration, if not the attention of feature-seeking...

NuForce P 8

Which preamp sounds more musical? The answer depends on your priorities. The Metis is arguably more magical and involving in the midrange and treble region, and it provides an onboard mm phonostage. On the other hand, the P8 is quieter, more flexible,...

Ampeg BA-112

I used to have a larger setup (4x10 1x15). it was only a little louder(Comparing 200W to 50W it is understandable)It was so hard to carry around where ever you went. If you need more sound run it through a PA. I would compeate(how loud)with a full...

Marantz SR 8500

Finding the audio-video receiver (AVR) that meets every requirement is a little like going to a restaurant and having to choose a combo platter from either Column A, Column B, or Column C—inevitably each mouthful ends up being a negotiated settlement...

The amplifier looks great and sounds great. Compared to previous HiFi amplifiers owned, this model has a brilliant stereo image, is excellent at low volume, and the bass is controlled. Great for linking up with an AV processor, the power amp button...

2000 WATT INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER

I have a Bose Series 3 and a pair of 301's. I saw the Technical Pro 2000 watts and for the price, took a chance. It is a plain jane unit. Plenty of power for my new set (of 4 !) BIC RTR 1530 speakers. The display is a bit bizzare and meaningless. The...

Griffin 4040-RDTRPB

Dared VP-845 tube SET Integrated amplifier

I own this amplifier for about a year now. It's very heavy. Watch your back. It also runs VERY hot (even not talking about the tube). After a few hours of operation, the coper plates and knobs can easily reach over 45°C. It also smells hot. If you have...
