Vince said: No doubt many of you have gotten used to such modern conveniences as slick OSDs and GUIs, network connectivity, and effortless setup. If that describes you, then Cambridge Audio’s Azur 650R A/V receiver might not suit. However, if you value sound quality above all, and particularly two-channel sound, as much as or more than you value home-theater listening, then you’d be ecstatic with the Azur 650R.

Read the SoundStage! Xperience review.

The gist: Home-theater receiver geared toward sound quality instead of fancy features.
