Onkyo TX-NR626

Onkyo's TX-NR626 is a value-packed AV receiver with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and even a turntable input, but it's just short of being our top pick.

Pioneer SC-LX58

To sum up, we love the Pioneer SC-LX58. What’s not to like? Pioneer has taken last year’s champ and made it even better. Admittedly it’s not a massive leap over the SC-LX57, whose owners shouldn’t feel the need to upgrade straight away. But if you’re...

Denon IN-Command AVR-X6200W

This is most likely not the place to write an extensive A/V revue, all I will say is that I replaced the AVR 4520 with this one and it is a whole world of step-up. People looking into this receiver know their thing, this is why I only insist on very...

Mark Levinson No 585

Let me go ahead and state that the No585 is the best sounding integrated amplifier I have ever had in my system and quite possibly the best I have ever heard anywhere at anytime.

Onkyo TX-RZ800

It sounds delectable with high-res audio sources – although prefers unplugged to unleashed – and with DTS:X compatibility to complement Dolby Atmos promised, plus wide HDCP 2.2 HDMI input support, it’s not going to date any time soon. Give it a listen.

Creative Soundblaster E5

Audio snobs will look down their noses the Sound Blaster E5, but I see—and hear—a ton of value in this little box. I’ll probably never use some of its features—the integrated mics, the CrystalVoice effects, and Scout Mode among them—but the E5’s...

NAD D3020

If it isn't already obvious, I was supremely impressed by the D 3020. Its ability to drive a pair of large four-ohm speakers as stoutly as a 75-pound Emotiva amplifier is nothing short of astounding. It may only be rated at 30 watts per channel but it...
