This review is from: ONKYO HT-RC260 7.2-Channel Home Theater Receiver
Pros: Supports all the latest codecs + 3D. Should be future proof for quite some time. It also has excellent build quality and is easy to set up with on screen display and easily to follow manual (no, seriously!). Coming from a 2002 Sony receiver from a HTIB this is like a new world of quality/ clarity. I'm currently using my XBOX, U-verse, and Boxee Box as inputs and the output goes to my 720p Mitsubishi HD1000u projector. I have not seen a single hicup sound wise and the video is much sharper. With my old Sony receiver I would have lots of audio issues in particular with my U-verse via an optical cable. That problem has vanished with HDMI on this receiver. For the price I don't believe there is another receiver than can match the value of this one. I looked at the 608, but decided that this deal ($300 on sale) was too good to pass up.
Cons: I wish the remote was back-lit. It's very hard to see in the dark. It would also be nice if they included banana plugs as they are quite expensive. When changing channels on U-verse there is a slight clicking noise as it re-establishes the signal. It's a minor annoyance but it was not present on my previous receiver. Some people have complained about the audio return pass through not working. This is something I won't use because I will always have my receiver on for audio since I use a projector.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend this receiver to anyone on a tight budget that doesn't want to sacrifice a lot of quality. You can set this baby up as a 5.1, 7.1, or even 9.1. Actually you can also add a second active sub woofer as well. The sound is very clear and there are a lot of options for tweaking including the set up mic they include. Very happy with purchase thus farREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AZiO BTD-V201 USB 2.0 Micro Bluetooth Adapter
Pros: installed on win 7 ultimate using included drivers disc with toshiba stack. Works awesome! Now using my wireless headphones/headset for my android phone on my computer when I need to move around the house. Great range and clarity. Very low profile!
Cons: Not really a con, but don't loose the included mini cd or you might have a hard time when you move it to another computer.READ FULL REVIEW
