Pioneer VSX-922 K

May saw Pioneer doing its traditional launch of a new range of AV receivers. As usual, the lower- and mid-range models break cover first – and the VSX-922 is one of the latter.

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...

Arcam AVR450

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...

Pioneer SC-LX85

The SC-LX85 is the latest in a lauded line of high-performance AV receivers from Pioneer. It's ostensibly a replacement for the award-winning SC-LX83, which implies a casual revamp, but it arrives casting a longer, more regal shadow. This is a...

Onkyo M 5000 R

Both the power and the pre amplifier have been built with audiophile-grade components from gold-plated, machined solid brass terminals to high-quality power supply units. At the same time, you get AES/EBU digital inputs in the preamplifier that help a...

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.

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.

Yamaha RX-A2020

The RX-A2020 retails for $1700 and is the 2nd to top-of-the-line receiver in Yamaha's 2012 Aventage (pronounced Ah-ven-taj) lineup (under the RX-A3020). The Aventage series has consistently impressed us with its build quality, sound quality, and...

Pioneer SC-2022

Pioneer's SC-2022 AV receiver proudly ditches the VSX prefix of its predecessor (the VSX-2012) to join the more illustrious company of its SC-toting brethren, although it doesn't quite make it into the elite LX club, falling short in its construction...

The Yamaha RX-V473 is a serviceable 5.1 AV receiver, but given that it has only four HDMI inputs, competing models offer a better value.

This is a well made, good value, mature stereo receiver. If this is what you need then, I think you'll be happy with it. Even though I've released 2 iOS apps to locate radio stations, I don't listen to a lot of radio. I must say, however, this receiver...

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.
