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.

Marantz SR5009

Sonically, I liked what I heard from the SR 5009. It performed well with both movies and music. The streaming from my NAS was a lazy man’s fantasy. The remote was well laid out and the INFO button quite useful. The App worked without glitches and could...

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...

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.

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...
