  • Denon AVRX2600H Seven Channel Home Cinema AV Receiver

    "Another year, another superb Denon AV Receiver" say What Hi-Fi? in their 5 star review on the AVRX2600.

    This 2000 series of Denon surround amplifiers has been purveyed by Carlton Audio Visual since the original AVR2000 in 1993. That product marked Denons throwing down the guantlet into the very competitive burgeoning home cinema scene against Yamaha and this model has been at the cusp of Denons offering of sound quality and feature set since.

  • Denon AVRX-4700H 8K ready 9.2 channel home theatre receiver ... available August

    It's easy to get cynical about new surround receivers. Let's be frank some of the most advertised and hyped format changes in the all - critical video sections of these amplifiers have turned techno trash heaps of laughably useless facility, how many people do you know who are wearing their 3D glasses to watch TV?

    However there is a particular security in buying a Denon Receiver at this level. You absolutely know that you are getting the most state of art video and audio decoding without missing out on any hidden acronyms but in a 4000 series surround amplifier you also get a really solid multichannel amplification output stage with real dynamics and excellent tonal neutrality.

    It's been a long battle and many other manufacturers have fallen behind on their feature set or degraded output stage quality as they go through their yearly model evolutions ... generally the more mainstream tier one the product the lower the quality of amplification and video chipset allied to the higher the claims made in their brochures.

    Partly this has been due to the commoditisation of the surround sound receiver so that the victor is the one with the lowest price and the most number of watts on the bulk stack of the floor of Walmart or Costco or online at Amazon. Many of these attractively packaged boxes have amplification inside that is literally lower quality than an eighties ghetto blaster

  • Denon AVRX3600H Surround Receiver with nine channels and multizone

    This is the springtime release of this new Denon range and the 3600 has significant upgrades. So its now a full nine channel unit with 7.2.4 onboard processing that can fully decode an Atmos system.The Denon range has been our long time companion since we began in 1990 and is utterly dependable.

     This newest range has an upgraded output stage with higher current on demand and improved damping factor that is intended to offer more snap and attack to the already class leading tone neutral presentation that characterises the sound of the Denon surround amplification.

    And here is the link to the "What Hi Fi?" review on the AVRX3600H:

  • Marantz AV8805 Dolby Atmos Surround Sound preamplifier with MM8077 Power Amplifier

    It's a terrible thing to have a high end single box surround receiver that becomes outdated due to changes in HDMI and audio codecs. Often that means discarding a perfectly good multichannel receiver because of changes to digital encoding practices. Turning what was five years ago your pride and joy into 15KGs of consumer electronic waste looking for a cosy grave in Northern Suburban landfill ...

    Then you buy the replacement model from the same brand and you discover that while it ticks all the feature boxes with bluetooth, wi-fi, dlna. snaggle waggle ... unfortunately it dosn't sound as good with music and dynamic theatre as the model you've just discarded.

    So the first reason you buy a Surround pre and Power combination like this one is to get off the aforesaid Hamster wheel of Built In Obsolescence and waste.

    The second reason is that it sounds fantastic.

    Home Theatre Review on the AV8805

    Home Theatre Review on the MM8077

    When you graduate to a pre and power amplifier like this you have the best of both worlds. The very sensitive low noise circuitry of the preamplifier and processor is separated from the high current demand of the power amplifier and is able to do its job of recovering all the residucal fine detail of the signal to the best possible degree.

    Meanwhile the power amplifier can be unleashed from the sensitive circuits of the pre-amplifier where its mass of current can be detrimental. Liberated and with massive current reserves, the power amplifier is able to grip and modulate the reactive load of the loudspeakers with unmitigated force complying with the complex demands of the sinal produced at the preamplifier stage.

  • Marantz PM14 Special Edition Amplifier ... an engine block of life for your Hi-Fi system

    This piece of art has been incredibly well received since we unpacked it sometime ago. A true heavyweight integrated without the highend pricetag, We have the Gold unit on display and its finish is just superlative.

    The PM14S1 SE is a nominally 90 Watt integrated amplifier with tone controls and a source direct button to bypass them with. It’s not over endowed with inputs but three line plus two tape loops should be enough for most, and there’s a really decent MM/MC phono stage as well. The "power amp direct input" will come in handy should one fancy a preamplifier upgrade in future and pre out for the opposite scenario. Given that the preamp is generally  the weakest link in most integrateds the former is a good idea.

    There is also a dedicated headphone output on the front with its own HDAM output module that claims to be capable of driving low impedance headphones. Construction is substantial just like the matching SA14 player/DAC, with thick aluminium on most surfaces and generational transcending build quality.

    The technology within is the contemporary high end transistorised norm based around discrete high current stages with segregated circuitry for each channel, where this amplifier differs is that the Marantz main man Guru Ken Ishiwata has individually graced each passive component in the amplfication chain with carefully auditioned selection ... this and the ultra premium 10 series may be the last of Marantz Hi Fi to be so graced ...

    Come in for an audition.

  • Marantz TT-15S1

    This turntable is one of Rab's favourites and it can be looked over within our sea of Rega. The whole Chassis and Platter is made out of a low resonance, high-density acrylic.

There's no skimping with this Marantz by just doing an Acrylic platter or using a low mass Acrylic to save some dollars. They've chosen the best materials to make the best possible source material, period. Learn More
  • Marantz PM10 Amplifier... an expression of engineering perfection

    I absolutely loved the Marantz ads from the 1980's ... here was a brand that was head and shoulders above the mainstream brands such as Technics and Pioneer in sound quality and engineering that was being marketed with quite uncommon flair.

    The Marantz "hear no evil" advert and the magazine placements is a steadfast of practise in small ads for our industry.



    These two stereo components are amongst the finest that have ever been made by this company. they are constructed under the severe tutelage of Ken Ishiwata, an original disciple of Saul Marantz, who still appears at the Munich hi fi show and has accasionally graced the small places of Carlton Audio Visual.

    These are not inexpensive components, but you would only be destined to purchase them once in your life ....

  • Marantz SR5014 Home Cinema Receiver

    We think this is where you step on the bandwagon of proper Hi Fi kit and decent theatre decoding. It's capable of carrying a respectable stereo performance as well as supporting a wide range of loudspeaker combinations in suround configuration.

    The SR5014 has that slightly retro Marantz aesthetic allied to the ubiquitous Denon Marantz GUI for set up that is utterly straightforward to use once commissioned. 

    This offers a warmer and smoother presentatuion in surround soiund than the competition with a finely nuanced stereo playback with good spatial presentation.
