's "Best Of 2002" List
The Best High-Performance Audio/Video Equipment You Can Buy

Category Winner – Kenwood VR5900

B&K AVR 307
Leading the pack in the high-end receiver category, the B&K 307 offers real high-performance amplifiers along with a full-feature A/V preamp in one chassis that is built like a tank.

Kenwood VR 5900

Another receiver with features out the ying-yang, the Kenwood VR 5900 also has a slick remote and great video switching.

Marantz SR 19 EX
While not loaded with quite as much gingerbread as the Yamaha RX-V3000, the $2,250 Marantz SR19 has a little more attention paid under the hood including 24/192 DACs.

Marantz SR 7200

105 watts, 6.1 surround and good DACs are only a start for this receiver that Richard Elen glowingly reviewed.

Onkyo TX-DS 989 Version 2

Receivers can cost as much as one would have spent on an Audio Research preamp back in the day. For this money for the Onkyo, you get it all – literally. This includes big amps, great DACs and inputs galore.

Yamaha RXV1
$3,100 – With nearly every feature you can imagine packed into one chassis, the RXV1 is a do-it-all receiver, complete with 110 watts x eight channels. It has digital EQ, a host of surround effects and more. For many, it is a better choice than separate components.
