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...

Marantz SR5007

Yes, the comparison between the new Marantz and Denon lines is apt - they share a lot of the same features such as Apple AirPlay, 3D pass-through, 4k upscaling, Audyssey MultEQ XT, and more. But lots of receivers have these features. What distinguishes...

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...

Cambridge Audio AZUR 351A

However, this amplifier falls short when it comes to conveying subtleties. Despite all its clarity this integrated isn’t expressive enough to deliver Nina Simone’s version of Here Comes The Sun with appropriate delicacy, nor does the 351A convey the...

Denon AVR-2113

It is easy to see how Denon has targeted their new '13 IN-Command receivers. The difference in price, rather than adding features that you wanted at all price points, adds additional power and connections. This means that the consumer (or custom...

Denon AVR-1912

The Denon AVR-1912's price in India is Rs. 45,900, so it doesn’t really end up being the cheapest receiver around. As far as its connectivity options go, it’s very good and it's a solid solution for a good speaker set.
