Modern AV receivers are among the most technically advanced devices available on the consumer market. Unfortunately, not all users have the opportunity to buy such devices of the top level. Therefore, today’s Onkyo TX-SR393 review features the 5.2 channel receiver from the mid-to-low price range. With 8 Ohm speakers, the receiver offers 80 Watts per 2 channels at 0.08% THD with 20-20kHz frequency.
I waited to make the Pioneer VSX-534 review for quite some time, and finally, I have got the unit in my hands. It is a very unusual and interesting 5.2-channel unit that offers 80 Watts of power per 2 channels when using 8 Ohm speakers and providing the usual 20 Hz – 20 kHz frequency range.
My Yamaha RX-V385 review aims to determine whether it gives Yamaha an edge in the competition in the low-end price segment of the market. It is a 5.1 channel AV receiver that can provide 70 Watts per 2 channels with 8 Ohm speakers at 0.08% THD and offers a standard 20 Hz – 20 kHz frequency. Furthermore, because RX-V385 is bi-amping capable, it helps the receiver to provide decent power and quality for movies.
Today’s Denon AVR-S570BT review features an entry-level receiver with 5.2 channels. It also has a surprising amount of power – 70 watts, 20 – 20000 kHz when using 8-ohm speakers, and a THD of 0.08%. The receiver can deliver 70 watts only per 2 channels, so when fully loaded, the amount of power distributed to every single speaker will decrease correspondingly.
Sony is one of those companies that operate almost in every industry one can find on the market of various modern equipment. Today’s Sony STR-DH790 review uncovers their aspiration in the receiver market in a lower price range. Compared to STR-DH590, the DH790 has two more channels and supports certain modern features. It is a 7.2 channel receiver with 145 watts per channel 8 ohm 0.9% THD.
The Denon AVR-S660H review is dedicated to a rather interesting entry-level receiver from the S-series. It is a 5.2-channel unit with 75 watts per channel with 8-ohm speakers with 0.08% THD. Note that the power would decrease when using all five channels. Still, the receiver is more powerful than the Marantz NR1510 and many other analogs.
There are many reasons to love Marantz products, and their NR series receivers are definitely among them. In this little Marantz NR1510 review, I will share my own experience with their lowest-level 5-channel receiver model. It is not expensive and therefore is affordable for most people. But will it work for you? That’s a question you’ll be able to answer in just a few minutes.
In 2021 Yamaha made a bold attempt to take a part of the market from Denon with their AVR-X2800H. To achieve this goal, they released a new receiver – RX-A2A, which was supposed to compete in this niche. And now I’ll tell you what came out of it.
There is hardly a company that can make a real revolution in the receiver market. Yet, this doesn’t stop Denon from trying. Judging by the AVR-X1700H specifications, I can already state that while it may not be the revolution, it is an interesting product. Especially compared to the competitors sharing the same price range, such as the NR1510 from Marantz and RX-V4A from Yamaha. Well, let’s take a closer look at what it is.
