Nuforce NF-DDA-100-BLACK

The DDA-100 consistently delivered maximum musical kicks regardless of recording quality or genre, and its paltry $550 price tag seems like a mere pittance for the level of sonic goodness on tap.

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...

Yamaha RX-V575

Yamaha has compiled pretty much everything you could ask for into the RX-V575 7.2-channel receiver: excellent audio performance, plenty of features, and great ergonomics. Minor quips aside, this receiver has a lot of what you'd need right now and maybe...

Denon AVR-X4000 Schwarz

The Denon AVR-X4000 AV Receiver is more than worthy successor to the AVR-3313CI. We review a lot of receivers, but rarely come across one we like this much. Read on to see why we're such fans.

Marantz PM-11S3

Review: The Marantz PM-11S3 Integrated Amplifier is rated at 100 watts/channel. It exceeds its specifications and sounds and looks great doing it. A true audiophile product with prideful ownership.

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.

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...

Sony STR-DA5800ES

A secondary definition of chimera is a thing that is wished or hoped for but, in fact, is illusory or impossible to have or achieve. Sony took a big gamble bringing out the STR-DA5800ES. It would have been a chimera either way—an amazing piece of gear...

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,...

I'm no stranger to Britain's Musical Fidelity, having reviewed a number of their budget minded and mid tier products over the past few years. A few of the items that have come through my systems include the V-DAC II, V-Link 192, M1 CLiC, and the M1...

Sony's great-sounding STR-DG1000 can handle HDMI switching and upconversion, and only misses the mark with its quirky setup and menu navigation.

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...

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.
