Denon AVC-X4700H

The AVC-X4700H is 8K/60Hz and 4K/120Hz-capable, ensuring this mid-range receiver ideally suited to next-generation sources – but it's the nine-channel power plant, 11-channel processing functionality and wide-ranging format support that make it a...

Quad VENA

Nevertheless, the Vena is still an interesting proposition, not least because of the apparent shift by Quad to a more driven, potent sound. Whether this direction is taken with the company’s future products remains to be seen – but for now, Vena is a...

Teac AX 3000

The TEAC Distinction line certainly seems to be well thought out and well matched to each other. The CD-3000 with its 192kHz upsampling before decoding and dual differential DACs has us excited.
