Pioneer VSX-S510

I bought this to replace my pioneer SC 2022 as it was massive and did not fit in my cabinet. I thought this reciever would not sound as good but i was wrong. Excellent sound. The one thing i do like is the gapless playback for wav and flac files...

Denon AVR-X3100W

Last month while reviewing the amazingly priced Denon AVR-S700W, I wondered how Denon could offer significant performance improvements without a significant increase in cost. Well, here comes the AVR-X3100W. The 700 was was part of Denon's entry level...

Moon Neo 340i

Messing with an icon can be trouble, something BMW found when it launched the sixth-gen 3 Series in 2012, and something it aims to redress with the 2016 340i. The car that had long been the sport sedan to beat suddenly suffered a crisis of identity:...

Onkyo TX-NR 535

Onkyo's TX-NR535 receiver offers decent home-theater performance and a useful number of streaming features, but it's not the last word on value.

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.

Harman AVR 1610S AVR

The Harman Kardon AVR 1610S is a decent AV receiver, but it pales in comparison to plenty of far better alternatives at the same price.

Musical Fidelity V90-DAC

This is a great unit, just as all the review in Stereophile and The Absolute Sound have said. Lively and clear, nice and full, with punch. I've tried a few of those Topping and SMSL things, but they aren't even close. Plus, SMSL's break down horribly...

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...

Arcam irDAC

Having left the DAC market alone for the best part of twenty years, Arcam is making up for lost time with an increasingly extensive range. The latest arrival is the irDAC that replaces the earlier iDAC. While it looks similar, the irDAC boasts more...

Pioneer U-05

The Pioneer U-05 is a solid, appealing machine that feels like a premium piece of hi-fi – and it sounds like one, too. There are subtler, more refined performers for similar money (our Award-winning Audiolab M-DAC is the clearest rival here), but that...

Pioneer SC-LX87 K

Pioneer's range of AV receivers caters to budgets from the extremely frugal to the decidedly lavish. If you feel that you sit in the latter category, you will need to look at the top of the pile and the SC-LX87. And, although this flagship might not be...

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.
