I was growing a bit tired of the lack-lustre approach of my Yamaha RX-V663's approach to stereo playback. For home theatre use it's excellent. So I've decided to take a chance on the CA SR10 after hearing it in a soundroom at Caldis. I am more than delighted to say that at the price I've paid it's worth every buck spent and more. It's partnered with a Marantz CD5004 CD player and Mission MV8 speakers with a pair of QED Performance Audio interconnects. As I type this I'm listening to Peter Murphy's "Socrates the Python" from the "Love Hysteria" CD. More than enough bottom end grunt, sweet top end details, big soundstage. At the price paid it would be absurd to fault this unit, except for what I think is a rather flimsy volume knob (but that's why it comes with a remote control). Geat stuff. Finally, my ears are happy. Marcel Cape Town South Africa
We don't get many stereo receivers for review these days, DaliNova, they're something of a rarity.
Don't see us doing a stereo receiver Supertest just yet!
Nice review, team, way to go CA.
Hi Andy, would the CA SR10 do well with my KEF Q5?
(to replace my Yamaha RX497)
Or would the a seoarate amp from CA 350A/550A/650A fit better? please share your thougths, thank you.
Hi Clare/Andrew, great review.
Could this be the start of the 2 channel stereo receiver reviews by What HiFi??
Would the CA-SR10 be an upgrade to replace my Yammie RX-479??

Cracking value for an all-in-one home cinema system with only a few spec and performance gripes qualifying our praise
The Samsung Galaxy S4 performs significantly better than its predecessor but has pressing issues with its interface, sound and picture quality
Good but not great – and that’s not quite enough at this hugely competitive price for AV receivers
