We cover everything from vintage two-channel to the more recent multi-channel surround AV receivers. \n\nWe discuss the evolution from tubes to transistors, power ratings and the FTC, social, economic, and demographic changes that have occurred in America since the 1960’s and how this has impacted the receiver market. Our listing doesn’t necessarily reflect the “best” of the best but there is no arguing these selections certainly left a lasting impression. \n\nRead: History of the Audio Receiver and Most Memorable Models\n\nWe look forward to hearing your comments and alternatives that you feel should have been included. \n\nPlease vote for your favorite receiver brand in our poll too.
