If you’ve got home theatre speakers, a multi-channel receiver will help you get the most out of them. Some models are even designed to calibrate your existing speakers to ensure they’re outputting optimal sound for your living room, while integrated audio technologies and HD decoders reproduce authentic sounds.
In addition to great sounds, an AV receiver can help you get the best sights from your entertainment too. Hook up your favourite HD sources and most receivers will take full advantage of features like Full HD video support, HDMI connectivity and, in some models, 3D video capability so everything looks as good as it sounds.
Perhaps the best reason for adding a receiver to your setup is the ability to get connected to a variety of sources. Most models make it easy to switch between devices with a quick push of a button, and include a variety of source-specific modes that ensure you get the optimal settings too.
A number of high-end receivers now come equipped with networking capabilities so you can get connected to online music services or your DLNA devices to stream music from a variety of places. Plus, USB and AUX inputs will let you powerful audio from a smartphone or media player.
