Three fea­ture-packed AV re­ceivers fight for the right to con­trol your sound

What Hi-Fi (UK) - - Av Amplifiers -

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
