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...

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.

Yamaha RX-A2050

By far the best receiver I have ever owned, every feature you could ask for. Took about forty five minutes to get completely setup. Dolby Atmos was difficult to figure out but that was more due to me not putting the ps4 onto bitstream from the playback...

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...

Pioneer VSX-923

Denon AVR-X2000

Is $200 worth two additional channels of amplification, 4k upconversion, a component video input, and extra HDMI input, and a few other odds and ends? We think for many consumers it will be. If you have no need of seven channels or video upconversion,...

Denon IN-Command AVR-X3200W

First 5 days I set it up and it worked great. Then the protection fault would hit every so often - once every other day or so. I didn't think much of it. I had the power connected to a filter so I pulled it off. After about 3 weeks the protection...

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.
