Epiphone [Amp Series] Valve Special

For the price, you're not going to find too many tube amps like the Epiphone Valve Special. There is always give and take however, as I don't think that this stacks up to other tube amps that I've...

Pioneer VSX 817-K

Real nuisance when you have to switch the TV input AND the receiver, to watch a DVD; and then switch them both back to watch the VCR.

Freddi Fish and the Case of The Missing Kelp Seeds

Great for children over 6. Can be challenging so I sat with my 4 year old and gave him hints while he controlled the mouse.

Pioneer VSX-D514

Bought back in 2005 and it's 5.1 Surround Sound is still going strong!! Mine came with the "Wireless" rear speaker that has the both left and right rear speakers in the unit. I have it on a shelf and NO WIRES to run to the unit!! You can run wires, but...

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...

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...

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...

Budda [Superdrive Series II] 18 Combo 1x12

I think these are a tremendous value. I have sat this thing next to a TopHat Supreme 16 and a matchless spitfire. It hangs with both of them no problem. Try one of these. It's shocking how unde...

Mesa Boogie [TransAtlantic Series] TA-30 1x12 Combo

These are great little amps for the money. They aren't cheap but will give you an array of tonal options. At new these amps come in at around $1650. This might be a little on the high side for this...

Blackstar Amplification [HT Venue Series] HT Studio 20

At new these amps come in at around $599 which is just a steal of a price if you ask me. They have such a quality of tone to them that is superb. I only hope other amp companies take notice at the ...

Yamaha REV100

What I liked about this unit was how well it made my acoustic guitar sound. It reminded me a lot of the recording I find on "Windham Hill records." What I didn't like about this unit is that the ...

While they are no longer making the Presonus DigiMax LT mic preamps, if you're after one you can definitely find them used pretty easily since this wasn't discontinued all that long ago. Getting e...

NAD 2155

I have used this amplifier for over 20 years, driving a pair of Magnapan SMGs, and just love the sound. Although I do not have a very large room, it is big enough, and I have never needed to turn up the volume more than about half way. Beautiful, crist...

Arcam AVR750

Many people will look at the price tag on the Arcam AVR750 and wonder why it costs so much. When you can go out and buy separates that offer better specs on paper, and more features, it is something one should ask. To my ears the Arcam AVR750 always...
