Podcast #464: Pioneer VSX-1120-K Audio/Video Receiver

We recently switched our go-to value receiver to the Pioneer VSX-820-K.  For under $300, it packs in a great deal of features.  But it also makes some sacrifices to get the cost down that low.  So for those who want to step up to a 7.1 receiver, we decided to check out the Pioneer VSX-1120-K.  Right now it’s just over $200 more at a street price of $535.

Podcast #437: Onkyo TX-SR608 Review

Podcast #430: Pioneer VSX-820-K Audio/Video Receiver

Every Fall, just before Christmas, we do a receiver buying guide to help our audience decide on what to buy. Last Fall our value receiver was an Onkyo SR607 which sold for $320.

Podcast #399: Receiver Buying Guide 2009

The HT Guys buying guides have become an annual tradition, and something that we really look forward to putting together.  Last week we covered TVs, this week we'll do A/V Receivers.  We'll break them down into price categories, just like last year, $500 or less, between $500 and $1000, and greater than $1000. It's become commonplace for receivers to support Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio, so we'll be looking for other features to distinguish each unit this time around.

Podcast #391: Denon Review, CEDIA 2009 Part 2 and Front vs. Rear Pro

We received a great listener review of the Denon AVR-3310CI Home Theater Receiver, so we'll share that with you. We also found a slightly different take on this year's CEDIA show with a few more products to talk about. Then we dive into the ageless debate, what to buy: a Front or Rear Projector for your home theater.
