Yamaha RX-V775WA RX-V

The Yamaha RX-V775WA is a great 7.2-channel network receiver that fulfills the promises listed on its spec sheet and hits the sonic mark accurately. If I were looking for a one-box AV solution, I would definitely purchase this receiver. With its...

Ampeg SVT-6 Pro

Saw this model in a music shop in Belgium, it was an older demo model and was on sale. Since this amp has been discontinued I brought in an old Genz Benz Neo Pak 3.5 head and payed 250 euro extra and took the amp home. Without any doubt, that was a...

Cambridge Audio AZUR 751R

What we also liked a lot about the 751R is the optimum way in which it has used the reduced real estate and yet provide with most features and functions that you would expect from any top-of-the-line AV receiver—complete connectivity and possibly...

Yamaha RX-V775

Some people like Onkyo's, some others prefer Pioneer or Denon. People with money to burn buy VERY expensive receivers. I've always gone for Yamaha. Subtle black box that does it all for me. The "Silent Cinema" DSP is superb. I only use headphones. This...

Teac UD 501 S

This is a wonderful DAC. I've used it both with a Marantz CD player's digital out and a MacMini playing HD audio files, and in both cases performance is stellar. Soundstage is full and deep, and imaging has been excellent across the board, particularly...

Sony STR-DN1030

On paper, the Sony STR-DN1030 looks like quite an impressive receiver, with a feature list poised to make other $500 receivers blush. Among those features are built-in WiFi, Bluetooth, Airplay, HDMI upconversion and a new user interface. In my opinion,...

Sony UDA-1

When you look at the clear, well laid out controls of the UDA-1’s front panel, touch its smooth metal chassis and see it’s motorised volume control in action, it’s impossible not to love the UDA-1. Other than slight harshness at the very high-end, the...

Yamaha R-S201

I'm a big fan of building budget stereos, so I got this to power my pair of Pioneer SP-BS22LR speakers I got on the cheap. Judging by the specifications given on newegg.com and yamaha.com, it appeared that it wouldn't have any trouble with the...

NAD C390DD: Sound quality But how does it sound? Well, for a smidge over £2000, pretty good. It’s precise and detailed, offering good scale and plenty of sonic authority. By the highest standards, though, it’s not as expressive or rhythmically adept as...

Marantz SR5007

Yes, the comparison between the new Marantz and Denon lines is apt - they share a lot of the same features such as Apple AirPlay, 3D pass-through, 4k upscaling, Audyssey MultEQ XT, and more. But lots of receivers have these features. What distinguishes...

Onkyo TX-NR1010

You can’t argue with the spec-sheet, nor the ability to fill a room with powerful sound, but when it comes to complete control of fine details, the Onkyo gives a little way to some tough competitors.
