Home Theater Receivers

Whether you are setting up a stereo system to listen to your favorite music, or to power your home theater system, choosing the right home theater receiver is crucial in getting the most from your surround sound system. Much like the human body, your audio video system performs at its best when it is connected to a strong heart. Today’s home theater receivers are the heart of your home theater or surround sound system and therefore should be chosen with care. Receivers function in many capacities:

  • Radio Tuner – AM and FM primarily, but many also offer satellite radio, and internet radio such as Pandora – or any other radio station available on the web.
  • Integrated Amplifier – which can power your speakers from one pair to up to 11 speakers.
  • Switcher – between audio and video components letting you adjust the sound to suit your room and preferences.
  • Decoder – of the latest audio formats found on TV, CDs, DVDs, and Blue-ray discs. Many receivers also allow for easy MP3 connections for ipods or even wireless connections to other devices such as a home computers.
