As seems usual for Onkyo, the TX-SR605 showed just how technically accomplished mass-produced electronics can be today, with perfectly flat frequency response and perfect D/A linearity to -90 dB (and beyond). Both are as good results as I've measured, and while my memory isn't infallible, I believe this to be the first time these two particular aces have been drawn by the same unit.

Yamaha's RX-V1800 yielded the fine technical performance usual from the firm's A/V receivers. Power exceeded its specs by a good margin and bettered 100 watts all around, even with 5 channels driven.

Meridian's G95 measured excellently in every test. Power was just about spot on its 100-watt spec, though the unit fell a bare 0.8 dB short of this level with all 5 channels driven. True to its high-efficiency Class D nature, the G95 remained at virtually the same temperature (warm, but not hot) whether it was left idling all day, or driven to the verge of clipping for long periods.
