Editor's Notes

November 21, 2018:

Many of the offerings in this category have pretty similar features, like room calibration and zone two audio, so a focus was placed instead on sound quality and connectivity, as well as power per channel. Sony's DH790 undoubtedly has the best combination of these at the lowest price point, though there are more capable units from Denon, Yamaha, and others if consumers are willing to pay a bit more.

Daniel Imperiale holds a bachelor’s degree in writing, and proudly fled his graduate program in poetry to pursue a quiet life at a remote Alaskan fishery. After returning to the contiguous states, he took up a position as an editor and photographer of the prestigious geek culture magazine “Unwinnable” before turning his attention to the field of health and wellness. In recent years, he has worked extensively in film and music production, making him something of a know-it-all when it comes to camera equipment, musical instruments, recording devices, and other audio-visual hardware. Daniel’s recent obsessions include horology (making him a pro when it comes to all things timekeeping) and Uranium mining and enrichment (which hasn’t proven useful just yet).
