Ampeg SVT-6 Pro

Saw this model in a music shop in Belgium, it was an older demo model and was on sale. Since this amp has been discontinued I brought in an old Genz Benz Neo Pak 3.5 head and payed 250 euro extra and took the amp home. Without any doubt, that was a...

Cambridge Audio AZUR 751R

What we also liked a lot about the 751R is the optimum way in which it has used the reduced real estate and yet provide with most features and functions that you would expect from any top-of-the-line AV receiver—complete connectivity and possibly...

Teac UD 501 S

This is a wonderful DAC. I've used it both with a Marantz CD player's digital out and a MacMini playing HD audio files, and in both cases performance is stellar. Soundstage is full and deep, and imaging has been excellent across the board, particularly...

Yamaha R-S201

I'm a big fan of building budget stereos, so I got this to power my pair of Pioneer SP-BS22LR speakers I got on the cheap. Judging by the specifications given on newegg.com and yamaha.com, it appeared that it wouldn't have any trouble with the...

Harman-Kardon AVR 161

Still, the price of this unit should be borne in mind. For regular home-theatre functionality, and for internet radio and regular AM/FM radio, fine. Likewise, for plugging in a USB stick with some music. What a pity it doesn't have skip keys on the...

Completing the line-up is an Ethernet port for connection to your home network (more on that later) and aerial socket for the built-in DAB radio tuner. It’s a little surprising not to find multichannel analogue inputs given that potential buyers may...

Yamaha RX V500

Perhaps I'm being a bit whiny. This is, after all, the only proper home-theatre receiver so far on the Australian market with a DAB+ tuner built in. With good all-round audio performance and a reasonable price, that makes it all worthwhile.
