Three feature-packed AV receivers fight for the right to control your sound
Every year, the battle of the £500 AV receivers is one of the most nail-biting categories we test. We haven’t even seen all of this year’s AV receivers yet, but it’s already shaping up to be the usual tense fight to the finish line. With the three amplifiers on test here all sporting similar features (from 4K HDR and Dolby Atmos to multi-room and hi-res streaming), it looks as though the audio performance will be the deciding factor.
There can be only one winner, so let’s find out which AV amplifier grabs our attention.
Yamaha RX-V583 £530
Sony STR-DN1080 £550
Denon AVR-X2400H £500
