Yamaha RX-A830

The most exciting thing about the new Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A830 is the price. At under $900, it has enough features to please even the most ardent audiophile and feature-phile. A full suite of networking, iDevice compatibility, MHL, 7.2 inputs, 100 watts...

Onkyo TX-NR929 B Schwarz

Onkyo's TX-NR929 is not one of the brand's heavyweight offerings, but this well-priced receiver – it now sells for around £1,000, after initially launching at nearer £1,500 – packs enough performance and feature tricks to comfortably drive and tune...

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.

Cambridge Audio DacMagic

This tiny device sounds spectacular, and its ability to turn any computer, Mac or PC, into an audiophile-worthy source can’t be understated.

Yamaha RX-A1020

We like this new trend in receivers. Rather than doling out features as the price going up, we are seeing features hitting lower price points and the number and types of connections increasing with price. The Aventage line from Yamaha has been popular...

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....

Pioneer SC-1223 K

For a mid-priced home theatre receiver, the Pioneer SC-1223 is pretty impressive. I'd prefer it to have multiple subwoofer crossover frequencies, but aside from that the audio performance could not be faulted. The video processing is excellent. The...

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...

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.

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,...

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.
