A fast and articulate albeit scarcely featured entry-level amplifier

Marantz SR7009

Definitely and given the irresistible combination of performance, design and features, we would say that you simply won't find better at this price. The Marantz SR7009 combines an attractive design with a decent level of build quality. It also includes...

Pioneer VSX-923

Nine pairs of plastic speaker binding posts allow you to hook up front, centre, surround, surround back and front height/width speakers, although with seven channels you can’t have surround back and front height at the same time.

Yamaha RX-V573

The Yamaha RX-V573 is a serviceable 7.1 AV receiver, but with only four HDMI inputs, competing models offer a better value.

Arcam SR250

The SR250 is a bit of an oddball, but for some people, its interesting feature set could be compelling

Onkyo TX-NR616

The Onkyo TX-NR616 is a tremendous AV receiver value, with eight HDMI inputs and a very low street price, although Onkyo's step-down models may be an even better buy.

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...

Line 6 99-073-0305

First time around, it’ll take you a little while to get going. Plug and play the Line 6 POD Studio UX2 certainly isn’t. But, if you’re a musician keen to use your PC for guitar, bass and vocal recording, the UX2 makes a great choice for the price.

Pioneer VSX-932

I bought this a week ago to replace an older vsx923 as i had recently upgraded to a samsung 4k tv and old system did not support 4k. I could not believe how much difference the vsx932made to the sound quality. Easy set up was running in less than an...

Yamaha RX-V675

The dynamic, full-bodied sound needs a couple of tweaks to make the RX-V675 reach its potential – but it's worth it

Onkyo TX-NR609

We didn’t think it was possible for Onkyo to improve on the superb TX-SR608 but incredibly it has. Everything we loved about last year’s model can be found on the TX-NR609 but mixed in with a bunch of new features that feel like so much more than mere...

Sony STR-DN1030

It always takes a special AV amp to boss this £500 sector, but the Sony definitely has the sonic credentials needed to take the fight to Onkyo et al.

Netgear EX7000

If you need the utmost in performance from an extended Wi-Fi network, plus the ability to connect a host of devices to it, then the Netgear EX7000 fits the bill perfectly. It is probably overkill for most households, though, and the one-year warranty...

Denon AVR-1912

The AVR-1912 is relatively light on connections, although compromises were always likely at this price. Thankfully Denon hasn’t skimped on HDMI inputs, offering six v1.4 ports plus a single ARC-compatible output. You only get two digital audio inputs...

For a long time prior to the recent headphone revival, Stax was the headphone at the top of the heap. While dynamic full-range headphones have made dramatic leaps in sound quality (and price), if you are limited to headphone systems priced under...
