Sony STR-DN840

If you need a new AV receiver, Sony's STR-DN840 is the best place to start. It's relatively affordable, plus it packs in all the latest features you'll actually use: six HDMI inputs, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and AirPlay. You won't find a better deal this year.

NAD D 3020

If you don't need a full AV receiver, NAD's D 3020 is a delightfully compact alternative. It has a great design, excellent sound quality and built-in Bluetooth, so it works well with your mobile devices too. It only supports stereo (although it has a dedicated subwoofer-out), but it's a great choice if you don't need surround sound.

Marantz NR1403

If you're not tempted by the wireless bells and whistles on the Sony STR-DN840, consider the Marantz NR1403. Its slimline design is the best we've seen, yet it still manages to pack in six HDMI inputs for $400. It's one seriously refined AV receiver.
