Home cinema amplifiers
This home cinema combo promises an experience far beyond any conventional set-up – and it delivers in a major way
Muscular and musical – we think it's something of a bargain
Yamaha's RX-V765 is the model above the RX-V565. It's supremely talented but falls just short of getting the full five-star star rating
For £250 it's a good value amplifier, but you can get superior performance and functionality from a number of its rivals
The Yamaha RX-V565 is a competent HD receiver capable of intimacy and detail, and good music playback, but bass lacks punch
Not the most agile amp at this price-point, but the Onkyo is still an appealing, feature-packed machine with plenty of clout
The Sony STR-DA5400ES has taken home cinema by storm – it’s comfortably the best receiver available at this price-point
It's a flagship multichannel receiver from Arcam, and we think the AVR600 has much to commend it, despite some reliability issues
We've met Rotel's multichannel amplifiers before, but can the '1560 garner as much praise as the '1550 before it?
Denon's mid-price AVR-2309 multichannel receiver is entering a cut-throat section of the market. Can it compete with established rivals?
