Onkyo TX-NR 3010

Onkyo is the quintessential feature-conscious audio/video receiver maker. The company is the champion of the mid-priced receiver, providing things like THX certification, Audyssey room correction, and other goodies at a poor man's price point. The...

T+A MP 3000 HV

The MP 3000 HV is a fine multi-source player. Sure, it’s pricey, but considering the range of high-quality sources that its £7900 price tag includes, it doesn’t seem overambitious.

Rotel’s reputation for delivering high-end audio at a reasonable price is safe, thanks to the RA-1570. What’s more, this is an integrated amplifier that meets the needs of the modern listener, and does it with impeccable style. In a world that is...

Onkyo TX-NR818

Listening to the percussion-heavy “Piano Smasher,” from Blue Man Group’s DVD The Complex, made me us as though we were about to personally reenact the chest-burst scene from Alien.

Anthem MRX 710

Anthem continues their tradition of offering tremendous value for the dollar in their second-generation MRX A/V receivers. The MRX 710 sounds fantastic with both movies and music. The receiver is so much easier and faster to configure thanks to the...

Pioneer VSX-924

Anyone enjoying a game of 'spot the difference between two AV receivers' would face a stiff task if faced with Pioneer's new VSX-924 and its predecessor, the VSX-923. This £500 home cinema power-pusher sports the same neat styling and shares many of...

Yamaha RX-S600

Priced at $650, the Yamaha RX-S600 slimline A/V receiver can fit where others don't. Does this half pint have what it takes to measure up to the big boys? Keep reading to see what we think.

Yamaha AVENTAGE MX-A5000 MX-A

We've waited a heck of a long time for Yamaha to launch a new home cinema hero to replace the venerable DSP-Z11. But rather than update that integrated design, the brand has opted to birth a pre/power combination as part of its premium Aventage line –...

Arcam FMJ A19

Arcam's FMJ A19 shouldn't be used for driving loads much below 6 ohms at high levels, but that is a sensible compromise made to keep its price affordable. Other than that caveat, the A19's measured performance is excellent.

Marantz SR6008

The Marantz SR5008, SR6008, and SR7008 receivers are straight up audiophile products, but lack some of the features that make other AV receivers so compelling. Here's how we think they stack up.

Onkyo TX-NR5010

The big selling point of the Onkyo flagship TX-NR5010 is 11.4 channel DTS Neo:X support. While it can only power nine of those channels, if you are shelling out $3000 for a receiver, we're guessing you have a few external amps lying around somewhere....

Onkyo TX-NR616

The Onkyo TX-NR616 is a tremendous AV receiver value, with eight HDMI inputs and a very low street price, although Onkyo's step-down models may be an even better buy.

Sony STR-DA5800ES

A secondary definition of chimera is a thing that is wished or hoped for but, in fact, is illusory or impossible to have or achieve. Sony took a big gamble bringing out the STR-DA5800ES. It would have been a chimera either way—an amazing piece of gear...

Roku 2 XS 1080p Streaming Player - Manufacturer Refurbished

In the past, I may have only recommended the Roku box to aging family members with less-than-perfect eyesight. Those boxes were easy to use, but the picture was standard-definition quality at best.
