In this section I will explain my scores based on my personal experience with various receivers and speakers. Bare in mind that I am no expert but I feel that I have sufficient experience (29 years) to give an honest non bias opinion regarding everyday features and use.
Pricing is a huge factor so I calculated double points on price (value for money), also if an amplifier/receiver performs exceptionally well in certain areas they might score more than 10 in that category. Three international reviews also get added as an average ( WHAT HIFI / CRUTCHFIELD / BESTBUY )
Keep in mind when I do reviews I use my honest everyday experience, I have no need to lie and I can't benefit from false reviews. I am not your average high mark up store, this is my hobby/passion and I always want the best for my customers.
