Auna AV2-CD508

Nice amp, with a nice sound. The Bluetooth works well. The remote is another story. It has an ‘eject' button, ‘fast-forward' and all the rest of it. This would be great if I were using it to operate a VHS player. But there is no facility to switch...

Marantz AV8802A

The AV8802A brings audiophile-quality processing into a multichannel environment and for a relatively reasonable cost. The only other processor I have tested for HCC to achieve this was the Anthem Statement D2V – a few years ago now – at near three...

Pioneer SC-LX89

If you want extra oomph from your action blockbusters and an immersive Atmos experience, you can’t fail to be impressed by the SC-LX89’s muscle and composure. We’d like a bit more dynamic subtlety to make this a one-size-fits-all amplifier. Still, for...

When you get right down to it, the Onkyo TX-RZ900 AV receiver isn't right for everyone. If you're looking for a simple plug-and-play solution, this ain't it, even compared with other AV receivers on the market. Its connectivity is so plentiful as to be...

Marantz SR 7010

1 out of 10? Your sums don't add up. Honestly, I'd love to know if you do even bother to cast a quick editorial eye over the stuff you put out, never mind actually proofread.

Pioneer U-05

The Pioneer U-05 is a solid, appealing machine that feels like a premium piece of hi-fi – and it sounds like one, too. There are subtler, more refined performers for similar money (our Award-winning Audiolab M-DAC is the clearest rival here), but that...

Yamaha RX-V577

Creative Sound Blaster X7

The Creative Sound Blaster X7’s spec sheet promises much, but it doesn’t really deliver sonically. Our money would go elsewhere unless we could get one with a very hefty discount. MORE: Best DACs 2015
