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....

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...

Pioneer VSX-D710S

I just hooked up my 3rd Pioneer receiver since 1970. I bought the biggest speakers they had then. Book shelve 6-way all 4 with 15" woofers. My first was only 70 watt to drive these 100-watt speakers. In 1985 #2 Pioneers first Dolby surround, with 60...

Yamaha RX V592

I found the sound quality, especially considering the price, to be better than expected. The remote control, however, sends signals to the wrong pieces of equipment. This is a real problem when you want to adjust the settings (such as rear channel...

Pioneer VSX D906S

The use of all the power generated by this machine was amazing. I think the design concept is lacking. The shape of the machine could have been more "modern". I think the performance of this particular receiver is second to none. THis is why I gave...

Marantz SR 7000

The details surrounding my technical background are really quite inconsequential. Summers in retail, winters in correctional facilities for the perfectly capable. Desperate for the dollar, I'd often drug customers and dress them up like French maids....

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....

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...

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...

Bluetooth Audio Receiver

I bought this as a replacement for one that I broke (be careful how you handle the Bose when it is on the 31-pin mount!). It has good sound quality and surprising range.

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...
