Onkyo TX-NR636

An impressively specified receiver, but its sound performance leaves us wanting

NAD T 758

NAD's modular-upgrade strategy endows V3 of the T758 with bleeding-edge room correction and audio streaming without impairing its excellent sound. Even with Dirac, the price point with so limited an input layout is not justified. Oh well, perhaps V4...

ONKYO TX-NR575

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.

Considering the Onkyo TX-NR646's generous feature set and superlative sonic skills, it's one heck of a value.

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...

Onkyo A-9010

Conceived in Japan and tuned in the UK, the A-9010 is an integrated stereo amplifier designed to deliver the "warm, full-bodied sound" that pleases European ears. But the real story here is price – at an affordable £199, you can experience your...

Marantz SR 7011

The Marantz SR7011 should definitely be on anyone's short list. It's a cracking AV Receiver that delivers fantastic value, with a set of features and a level of performance far in excess of its £1,499 price tag. The SR7011 uses the classic Marantz...

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...

Onkyo TX-RZ900

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...

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

The £500 AVR market is more competitive than the final stages of The Great British Bake-Off. These days, it's no good simply offering multichannel decoding and amplification with the odd DSP mode and a raft of HDMI sockets. No: you have to spread the...

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
