Sathyan said: For readers mostly interested in video playback that supports the latest audio codecs -- Onkyo has, impressively, delivered Dolby Atmos via a firmware update -- but want to occasionally listen to music, the TX-NR838 is a solid value.

Read the SoundStage! Xperience review.

The gist: One of many good HT receivers on the market.
