Pioneer VSX-823-K

The Pioneer VSX-823-K is a good deal for AirPlay fans looking for lots of HDMI connectivity, but it falls short on wireless features like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Onkyo TX-NR616
REVIEW

Onkyo TX-NR616

The Onkyo TX-NR616 is a tremendous AV receiver value, with eight HDMI inputs and a very low street price, although Onkyo's step-down models may be an even better buy.

REVIEW

Sony STR-DN1010

Sony's midrange AV receiver improves on its predecessor with new HDMI features like standby pass-through and 3D compatibility, but it lacks a compelling reason to pick it over its competitors.

REVIEW

Eos Converge Wireless Transmitter

The Eos Converge Wireless Transmitter is easy to use and performs well, we just wish it wasn't so bulky.

Panasonic SC-BT300
REVIEW

Panasonic SC-BT300

Panasonic's SC-BT300 is a 7.1 home theater system with built-in Blu-ray and its tall-boy speakers help deliver very good sound quality, but it doesn't have the Netflix streaming found on some of its similarly priced competitors.

Samsung HT-AS730ST
REVIEW

Samsung HT-AS730ST

The Samsung HT-AS730's unimpressive sound quality, finicky HDMI ports, unreadable display, and tedious input system will have you looking elsewhere for a Blu-ray-ready home theater package.

Onkyo HT-S9100THX
REVIEW

Onkyo HT-S9100THX

The Onkyo HT-S91000THX breaks the HTIB mold, offering four HDMI inputs, full-size speakers, and the best sound we've heard to date from an all-in-one system.
