Editor AV Receiver Reviews

The more electronic wizardry you cram into a single box, the more complicated that box will be to operate and understand. This, dear reader, is the A/V receiver owner's dilemma. The good news is that today's A/V receiver is so fully featured, it can draw your living room curtains, dim your porch lights, serve you up with Internet radio feeds from Luxembourg in one room, and deliver your favorite episodes of My Little Pony on Netflix in stunning 7.2 surround sound in another, all with the click of a single button. The bad news is that such functionality often comes at the cost of your sanity. Worry not, we're here to help. We exhaustively test gobs of A/V receivers to determine not only which ones sound best, but also which are easy enough to use that you'll actually enjoy using them.
