Integra DTR-40.2 7.2 Channel AV Receiver Preview
Integra’s 7.2 channel, THX Select 2 Plus certified DTR-40.2 receiver is very capable 3D-ready, 2-Zone, networkable A/V Reciever with 7 HDMI 1.4a inputs and a power rating of 110 watts per channel (20-20kHz, 0.08% THD).Integra's DTR-40.2 comes in a matte black, and though there are plenty of buttons to fiddle with on the unit's front, it remains well organized and clean.   I like the look of the distinctive, easy-to-see silver volume and power controls.  Also on the front is a lone USB port for connecting iPod/iPhone's and other digital media drives and one of the HDMI inputs.  Speaking of HDMI, this receiver has 7 HDMI 1.4a inputs (6 back, 1 front) which provide 3D pass-through for Blu-ray and Broadcast content, and also supports Audio Return Channel.  There are also 3 Y/Pr/Pb component inputs (capable of up to 1080i), 1 D-Sub ...

Denon AVR-991 7.2 Channel A/V Receiver Preview
Denon's new AVR-991 is essentially a rebranded AVR-3311ci, which means you're still getting a broadband network ready, powerful, 7.2 channel audio/video receiver with 6 HDMI 1.4a inputs.  But there are some key differences here, including 6 rear HDMI 1.4a inputs (vs. 5 rear and 1 front),no second HDMI output, only two zones of multizone suppor, no HD Radio, no RS-232 or IR ins/outs, no pre-outs for an external amp, no front flap, and only a 2 year warranty (vs. 3).  If saving $100 is more important than any of those features, you're in capable hands.Like its more expensive sibling, Denon's AVR-991 features 7 discrete power amp circuits, with each channel is rated at 125 watts (8 ohms, 20Hz to 20 kHz, .05% THD), a 20-watt per channel gain over the 2311ci or 891, and a .03% reduction in Total Harmonic ...

Denon Reference AVR-5308CI 7.1 Channel A/V Reciever Preview
Denon's 7.1 channel, THX Ultra2 certified AVR-5308CI(A) is the flagship in the company lineup.  It has won awards from Bestcovery, Audioholics, Home Theater, and ExC!te.  It features 6 HDMI 1.3a inputs along with roughly one trillion analogue inputs (RCA and BNC), and WiFi connectivity, but at this price range is far from future proof so smart shoppers may want to hold off if he or she cares about 3D capability or modern height-channel surround formats.  Like it's newer, less expensive siblings, the 5308CI(A) comes in black, and the front inputs and most of the buttons are hidden behind a large front flap which leaves the overall appearance minimalistic and clean.The equal power amp designs features 7 discrete power amp circuits, and each channel is rated at 150 watts (8 ohms, 20Hz to 20 kHz, .05% THD), a 10-watt per channel ...

Denon AVR-A100 9.2 Channel A/V Receiver Preview
Denon's new AVR-A100 is a rebranded AVR-4311ci made special for Denon's 100th Anniversary.  Owners get a special gloss finish, 100th Anniversary badging, 100th Anniversary block condensers, gold-plated terminals, premium upgraded speaker binding posts, cast iron feet, a brand history book, a fancier shipping box, and a 5 year warranty (up from 3 years).Otherwise, in terms of processing, amps, and internals, you're getting all the same great features already available in the AVR-4311ci, which is a broadband network ready, powerful 9.2 channel audio/video receiver that is expandable to 11.2 channels, features 7 HDMI 1.4a inputs, 9 discrete power amp circuits, with each channel is rated at 140 watts (8 ohms, 20Hz to 20 kHz, .05% THD).  The amplifier section also features the ability to easily handle 4 ohm speakers.The AVR-A100 has 7 HDMI 1.4a inputs (6 rear, 1 front) which provides ...

Marantz SR 6004 A/V Receiver Review
Marantz has long been associated with stereo receivers and has produced an extensive line of components over the last 40 years. Times have certainly changed from when all-one-receivers were at the heart of many a 2-channel stereo system and were called upon to serve as amp, tuner and phono stage. Nowadays, a receiver can hardly get a second look unless it can serve up the video goods, too. Marantz's SR 6004 is part of the new breed of A/V receivers designed to accommodate practically any audio/video connection and demand imaginable. With a suggested sticker of $1,249.99, the SR 6004 proves the old adage, “you get what you pay for.” And it's quite a lot.FeaturesIt would be a short review if I focused on what the SR 6004 can't do, as its list of features is nearly inexhaustible. One could spend ...
