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...

Sony STR-DN840

The Sony STR-DN840 is a very good home cinema amp, even if it doesn’t quite display the all-round strength of its bigger sibling.

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.

Arcam airDAC

The airDAC is good, but falls short of greatness because of a couple of obvious oversights.

TiVo Roamio OTA

TiVo's latest is the best over-the-air DVR ever made, but the $15 monthly service fee (combined with the lack of a Lifetime Service option) means you're trading a low upfront price for some high long-term costs.

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.

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...

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....

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...

Arcam FMJ AVR450

When it comes to crafting AVRs, Arcam is very much from the old school. It's more concerned with the purity of performance than the number of logos on the box, an ethos that has earned it audiophile adoration, if not the attention of feature-seeking...
