In terms of overall quality, which brands would be your top 3?
Would money be an issue?
Quality? In my very limited opinion
I definately wouldnt put Denon on my quality list. B&K is iffy also.
Money no issue - how about Bel Canto? Halcro? Goldmund?
Money an issue - can anything beat Jolida for the price?
Quality? Perhaps Anthem or Bryston.
That's a pretty subjective question. If "quality" means a reliable product, then my Aiwa mini system I had when I was a kid played pretty much non stop for years. Never had a problem with it.
For what type of component?
Hasbro - They make Axis & Allies, the original Transformers, and Monopoly.
Legos - Can't go wrong there.
Kenner - They make Star Wars toys.
honestly, does anything beat Disney, Microsoft, and Bose?
Pretty funny replies. I see I was limiting myself needlessly. Actually the top three brands would be:
Of course that's if we're talking about ocean crossing trawlers!
How about Levitra, Viagra, and Cialis?
Home Theater: Theta, Meridian and Lexicon
2-channel: Lamm, Thor and Nagra
Guys, i was referring to receiver brands
Oh receivers. Don't know.
fruit of the loom
The question is far to vague. Top 3 in terms of WHAT? Sound? Features? What price range? I would have a list under $1K and obviously a very different one at under $5K.
How about Miramax, Harley-Davidson, and Dogg Digital ?
It is my humble opinion that few (if any) receivers made today compare favorably with the behemoth receivers from 25 years ago. I honestly don't understand how engineers can un-learn things.
But the same is true of audio recordings. I have a few that are over 40 years old, and that sense of "wow" is more present than anything put out today (to include SACD/DVD-A).
John Garcia, you are right. Maybe I should limit it to top receiver brands under $500. Thanks for the clarification.
Kevin, you made a very interesting point. My aim really was to be able to focus on the brands because i'm shopping for a receiver right now. I'm overwhelmed by the number of brands out there and i would like to focus on just 3. thanks.
