2011 $600 A/V Receiver Comparison Guide
I love Audioholics’ roundup of receivers and devices, and this time up they are looking at some of the best receivers $600 can buy!
There are a few universals at this price point. You’ll find that all the receivers have discrete amps, and all manufacturers rate their amps with the more robust 20Hz to 20kHz measurement. All of the included products support 3D and Dolby ProLogic IIz, upconvert all their video to HDMI for a single cable connection, have a front mounted USB port, and sport an on-screen GUI overlayed over HDMI. Each receiver also supports a second zone of audio with either pre-outs or assignable back amps. They all support at least a 7.1 but none have any analogue inputs for supporting legacy gear. We’ll now be taking a look at these new receivers one by one from least to most expensive.
