TiVo Roamio OTA

TiVo's latest is the best over-the-air DVR ever made, but the $15 monthly service fee (combined with the lack of a Lifetime Service option) means you're trading a low upfront price for some high long-term costs.

Onkyo TX-NR656

Purchased this as I wanted to move from 7.1 on my old Onkyo amp to atmos and dts-x, set up was easy on the whole and the difference in sound using atmos was unbelievable. Also had the bonus of wifi and Bluetooth so I could use my Spotify account on it....

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...

Sony STR-DN1060

The STR-DN1060 has plenty going for it, but that isn’t quite as straightforward as before. Those looking to futureproof their system with Atmos won’t find that here, and with the Denon AVR-X2200W showing that it is possible at the same price, things...

NAD C390DD: Sound quality But how does it sound? Well, for a smidge over £2000, pretty good. It’s precise and detailed, offering good scale and plenty of sonic authority. By the highest standards, though, it’s not as expressive or rhythmically adept as...
