Receivers & Amplifiers
“First off I would like to point out that this receiver came with a home theater in a box kit that included a 6.1 speaker setup which explains the high purchase price for this mid range receiver. This receiver features 6.1 discrete and matrix modes, digital and analog surround inputs, 24 dsp presets, 2 switched AC outlets, A/B switch, and a composite/ component video switcher. The best features...” --ikkuranus
“I've had this receiver for a few years now and I can say I've been pleased with it. It replaced a Adcom GTP-740 and Kenwood KMZ1. Still using the Kenwood LS-X1F LCR's and LS-X1S plus SW-X1 for my speaker setup. I don't have speakers for side surround which won't allow for auto setup. That's not a big deal since I have a pretty good knowledge of time-delay and the like from my car-audio...” --allnpt0
“I was very excited to upgrade to the new Sony STR-DN1040. My primary consideration was that I wanted to have on-demand DLNA streaming. My previously used the Sony SMP-N200 streaming box and it was very reliable -- but it wasn't built-in to the receiver so I had to manually power-on and select inputs first. So the 1040 receiver seemed the perfect solution. Unfortunately, my experience was...” --sdsalsero

“The design of the RX-V673 is sleek yet understated. No spouse should complain no matter where it's placed. The display window on the receiver provides the user with almost anything the user wants to know, and with the press of a button on the remote it can be displayed on screen. The hand-held remote can be programmed to control most TVs, BD players and other electronic devices, too. The...” --palavering
“It didn't take long once we finally purchased a 3D TV to realize that our 10 year old Home Theater in a Box was not going to work for us any more. Since we had no Digital Audio connections, HDMI connections, or anything else useful on the HTiB...I immediately started searching for an AVR that could accommodate our new TV and 3D Blu-Ray player. Of course, I wanted the absolute biggest, baddest...” --clbkdaz

“Instead of asking you to read entire review, I am going to say right at the beginning that RX-S600 is receiver to consider for someone who: - is unable to fit most of standard height receivers - does not intend going beyond 5.1 speaker system - and appreciate Yamaha Cinema DSP functionality If all three apply, then you should read the rest. Because the receiver has typical commonly known audio...” --esdwa
