Home cinema amplifiers

Reviews

£ 280

As entry-level machines go the TX-SR507 is inoffensive enough, but we've come to expect better from Onkyo

£ 799

This Marantz looks the business and has a decent specification, but it's not quite dynamic enough to match up to the elite

£ 700

The RX-V1065 is a seriously good multichannel receiver, and a major return to form for Yamaha

£ 1900

The Pioneer SC-LX82 picks up a huge amount of detail, making it one of the most capable amplifiers on the market

£ 800

If you're working to a sub-£1000 budget, then you can't do better than look at this impressive arrival in the Denon AV stable

£ 800

The Onkyo TX-NR807 is a good amp, that with greater subtlety could be a great amp

£ 1200

The '3310 makes a fine purchase, but it's not quite good enough to trouble the class leaders

£ 950

The VSX-LX52 is a very capable machine, but it falls a touch short in the performance-per-pound stakes

£ 300

If you’re taking your first step on the AV ladder then the Sony STR-DH800 should definitely be on your hit-list

£ 450

With the AVR-1910, Denon has produced a worthy and immaculate all-rounder that's faultless at this price
