Yamaha RX-V775WA RX-V

The Yamaha RX-V775WA is a great 7.2-channel network receiver that fulfills the promises listed on its spec sheet and hits the sonic mark accurately. If I were looking for a one-box AV solution, I would definitely purchase this receiver. With its...

Ampeg SVT-6 Pro

Saw this model in a music shop in Belgium, it was an older demo model and was on sale. Since this amp has been discontinued I brought in an old Genz Benz Neo Pak 3.5 head and payed 250 euro extra and took the amp home. Without any doubt, that was a...

Cambridge Audio AZUR 751R

What we also liked a lot about the 751R is the optimum way in which it has used the reduced real estate and yet provide with most features and functions that you would expect from any top-of-the-line AV receiver—complete connectivity and possibly...

Teac UD 501 S

This is a wonderful DAC. I've used it both with a Marantz CD player's digital out and a MacMini playing HD audio files, and in both cases performance is stellar. Soundstage is full and deep, and imaging has been excellent across the board, particularly...

Custom installers are well catered for too, with RS-232, remote control in/out, flasher in and 12V trigger output. Completing the line up are an Ethernet port to access the unit’s network functionality and Marantz’ M-XPort for connection the RX-101...

Onkyo HT-RC260

The Onkyo HT-RC260 offers an extraordinary value for a receiver with six HDMI inputs, although its sound quality isn't what we expect from an Onkyo.

Harman-Kardon AVR 161

Still, the price of this unit should be borne in mind. For regular home-theatre functionality, and for internet radio and regular AM/FM radio, fine. Likewise, for plugging in a USB stick with some music. What a pity it doesn't have skip keys on the...

Arcam AVR450

Completing the line-up is an Ethernet port for connection to your home network (more on that later) and aerial socket for the built-in DAB radio tuner. It’s a little surprising not to find multichannel analogue inputs given that potential buyers may...

Pioneer SC-LX85

The SC-LX85 is the latest in a lauded line of high-performance AV receivers from Pioneer. It's ostensibly a replacement for the award-winning SC-LX83, which implies a casual revamp, but it arrives casting a longer, more regal shadow. This is a...

Marantz SR5007

Yes, the comparison between the new Marantz and Denon lines is apt - they share a lot of the same features such as Apple AirPlay, 3D pass-through, 4k upscaling, Audyssey MultEQ XT, and more. But lots of receivers have these features. What distinguishes...

Yamaha RX V500

Perhaps I'm being a bit whiny. This is, after all, the only proper home-theatre receiver so far on the Australian market with a DAB+ tuner built in. With good all-round audio performance and a reasonable price, that makes it all worthwhile.
