Sony STR-DN1070

Lack of Atmos is more than eclipsed by excellent sound quality, making the Sony STR-DN1070 one of the best receivers at this price.

Creative Sound Blaster X7

The Creative Sound Blaster X7 offers a ridiculous number of features for the money and sound quality is generally very good, but its appeal is limited.

Denon DL-103 is one of the best buys in the price range. It plays everything, and does it excellently with a large, open, and transparent sound image. Good dynamic control and fast transient response make it a small firework on the turntable. A good...

Onkyo TX-NR838

Onkyo may or may not be the actual market leader in audio/video receivers, measured by unit sales, dollars, or any other B-school metric you care to name. But I’m fairly certain that, year in, year out, they produce more new AVR models combining...

Onkyo TX-NR 575

The midpriced Onkyo TX-NR575 receiver sounds good and comes fully loaded with Dolby Atmos and Chromecast built in, but it's not our first choice.

Sony STR-DN1030

Sony's recent A/V receiver offerings have been somewhat a mixed bag. On one hand, they seemed to offer a good mix of features and connectivity for the money. On the other hand, the inclusion of too many useless bells ‘n whistles mucked up their...

Onkyo TX-NR626

Onkyo's TX-NR626 is a value-packed AV receiver with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and even a turntable input, but it's just short of being our top pick.
