    I'm looking to upgrade my receiver, $500 is my absolute max but I'd really like to stay closer to $400. Features I definitely want: at least 5.1, airplay compatibility, at least 3 HDMI ins, at least 1 component video in. Nice to have: 7.1 and/or second zone. The two receivers I'm most...

    Some of you know my dedicated panel but for those you don't you can click the link in my signature to get some details. A quick run down is I pulled in 8 dedicated outlets to an outlet box behind my rack each on a 120v 20A breaker. One feeder was pulled in using #4 cable, three using #8, three...

    Introduction I've delayed writing this review far longer than I had planned, but life happens, and schedules change. Although I fear I'm testing Arcam's patience with the duration of the loan, I will say the presence of the AVR750 in my system has been a really pleasant perk. It can be easy to...

    Introduction I will begin by admitting a bit of bias toward Yamaha audio components. For as long as I can remember, my uncle has had a vintage set of Yamaha speakers powered by a Yamaha receiver, and I have always loved the sound of his setup. I never stuck with piano lessons long enough to be...

    Since I have a few Carver power amps, an AV pre-amp would do. But not sure why, AV pre-amps are more expensive then receivers. My budget is $1000 or so, need something that has good on screen manual, easy to use and prefer, if possible small footprint and comes with RF remote. Any...
