Yamaha RX-V779

What a wonderful AV receiver for the money. I bought this to replace a Marantz AV Receiver (that was utter rubbish), and I'm really glad that I did. Firstly, set up is a breeze and the YAO feature means that it takes a couple of minutes to have the amp...

Pioneer SC-LX58

To sum up, we love the Pioneer SC-LX58. What’s not to like? Pioneer has taken last year’s champ and made it even better. Admittedly it’s not a massive leap over the SC-LX57, whose owners shouldn’t feel the need to upgrade straight away. But if you’re...

Musical Fidelity V90-DAC

A well-priced, well-featured DAC that’s a pleasant listen, but far from the last word in outright entertainment

Onkyo TX-RZ800

It sounds delectable with high-res audio sources – although prefers unplugged to unleashed – and with DTS:X compatibility to complement Dolby Atmos promised, plus wide HDCP 2.2 HDMI input support, it’s not going to date any time soon. Give it a listen.

Yamaha AVENTAGE RX-A3040

If our judgment were based purely on how big and spacious an AV receiver sounds, the Yamaha RX-A3040 would take the five stars easily. It’s a powerful beast, but is let down by not delivering the subtlest, punchiest and most captivating performance...

Arcam irDAC

Some products are impressive from the moment they’re powered up. The irDAC is one of those – the way it sucks you in and encourages to keep listening is a rare talent and one you can’t afford to ignore.

Creative Soundblaster E5

Audio snobs will look down their noses the Sound Blaster E5, but I see—and hear—a ton of value in this little box. I’ll probably never use some of its features—the integrated mics, the CrystalVoice effects, and Scout Mode among them—but the E5’s...

Cambridge Audio MINX XI

Best music system £400-£800, Awards 2015. Overall this is a terrific streaming system. It’s more than good enough to give Marantz’s Melody Media M-CR610 a real fright when it comes to sound quality

Pioneer SC-LX87 K

Completing the line-up is a USB port for the supplied wireless LAN adapter and a port for the asynchronous USB-DAC, which lets you directly connect a PC or Mac and play high-resolution music up to 192kHz/32-bit. It’s unique to this receiver and clear...

I needed to upgrade my old amplifier so asked for advice from Richer Sounds (Cardiff). They were brilliant and suggested the Cambridge Topaz SR20 so I took that advice and purchased it. The Topaz looked amazing, medium size and made with a black metal...
