The Sony STR-DN1080 is fully featured and easy to use, and it sounds great, making it the best AV receiver available for the price.
The midpriced Onkyo TX-NR575 receiver sounds good and comes fully loaded with Dolby Atmos and Chromecast built in, but it's not our first choice.
As long as you don't demand the latest surround and streaming features, the Yamaha RX-V483 offers excellent sound at an affordable price.
The Denon AVR-S730H is the most affordable Dolby Atmos/DTS:X receiver we’ve tested, and a superb value overall.
The Marantz NR1508 serves up a winning combination of performance and features in a sleek (for an AV receiver) package.

The Yamaha RX-S602 is a compact AV receiver with multiroom capabilities, but only four HDMI inputs.

The Yamaha RX-V473 is a serviceable 5.1 AV receiver, but given that it has only four HDMI inputs, competing models offer a better value.
