Sony STR-DA3100ES Receiver
Introduction Sony is widely recognized as a true technology leader in the world of home electronics. In today’s marketplace, Sony boasts some of the most forward-thinking products available at any price, including Qualia SRXD video displays, Blu-ray discs and far beyond. While Sony has launched new lines in Qualia (ultra-high-end gear) and Bravia (LCD TVs), they are also out to breathe new life into their Elevated Standards (ES) line for an entirely new generation of buyers. This starts with a new 7.1-channel A/V receiver called the STR-DA3100ES. Seven channels are supported by 120 watts of crisp power, countless features and numerous input/outputs for a list price of $999.99. Features The front of the STR-DA3100ES is an attractive sight. The brushed aluminum face and the aluminum-colored chassis are pleasant changes from the traditional jet-black finishes that are synonymous with A/V components. The two-line dot matrix display is recessed from the front of the unit where the input ...

Integra DTR-10.5 Receiver
Introduction I have always pushed my receivers and AV preamps to the limit in terms of inputs. Having almost every modern videogame system imaginable, an HD PVR, a DVD player, a few VCRs, an Onkyo Nettunes receiver, a DAT player, a High-8 video camera and a Sirius Satellite receiver, among others, as source components, I have yet to find a receiver or AV preamp that fully accepts every single input I throw at it without compromising somewhere. That is, until I discovered Integra’s top-of-the-line DTR-10.5 receiver which starts at $3,800. The connection possibilities are almost endless and the amount of sound formats and technologies on the DTR-10.5 are unbelievable. From the high-quality 192 kHz/24-bit DACs to almost every DTS and Dolby Digital format known to man and with Integra’s Nettunes Internet radio music server playback capabilities built in, I believe this 7.1-capable receiver with THX®Surround EX™ and THX®Certified Ultra2 can be the core of a $10,000 ...

Sherwood Newcastle R-965 Receiver
Introduction As people rush out to electronic stores to get the biggest plasma or projection HDTV they can afford, many are realizing that something is missing when they get their monster set home. The impact and the “wow” factor of a new TV is not quite the same without the killer sound that we experience in the store. It is essential to not skimp on the audio electronics when building an HDTV-based home theater, no matter the scope of the system. This is where Sherwood Newcastle comes in. What better company to trust with your new receiver than the receiver supplier to many of the industry's best-known brands? Newbies to the world of home theater are often surprised to learn that, in addition to making its own brand of high-quality receivers, Sherwood is also responsible for OEM (original equipment manufacturer) receivers for other companies. Because of their internal R&D paired with an outright amazing ability ...

NAD T773 Receiver
Introduction When it comes to designing and manufacturing components with excellent QRP (quality to price ratio), few companies can match the track record of NAD. For the last three decades, NAD has stayed true to their founding creed, designing and manufacturing components with outstanding performance, excellent value and simplicity of operation. Speaking as a satisfied customer, I’ve owned many NAD products through the years, utilizing them in a broad array of applications with excellent results. NAD has applied this same high-performance, cost-conscious design and manufacturing philosophy to their first seven-channel, surround sound receiver, the T 773. Positioned at the top of NAD’s “Classic” line of audio/video receivers, the T 773 incorporates an extremely full-featured, flexible processor/preamplifier/tuner section with a formidable multi-channel amplifier. Offering the latest surround sound DSP algorithms, with a few proprietary modes as well, the T 773 is also capable of being upgraded via a RS232 port, insuring its ability to stay current with potential ...

Harman Kardon AVR 630 Receiver
Introduction There are few audio/video enthusiasts or even casual consumers that have not heard of the brand Harman Kardon. Founded by Dr. Sidney Harman, Harman Kardon has been contributing innovative hi-fi products to the market for over 50 years. They are responsible for many industry firsts: the first receiver (the festival D1000 in 1953), the first stereo receiver, the first cassette player with Dolby B, and the list goes on. Recently, Harman Kardon released the AVR 630, a cutting-edge A/V receiver that packs seven channels of high-current amplification with all the latest features in home theater technology for a price of $1,299. The first thing you will notice about the AVR 630 is that it is gorgeous. I love how they ditched the traditional all-black steel chassis and went for the silver finish instead. The plastic front panel has a two-tone color scheme of silver and black with ultra-cool blue LEDs accenting the standby switch ...
