A multichannel preamp it is a processor without integrated amplifier modules.
These are devices that are used in higher level installations , and you always have to add external stages to them of as many channels as you need.
Since it is a type of specialized component for home theater , we recommend that you ask our sound specialists for advice.
When it comes to enjoying the best cinema at home, having a professional sound system of superior quality is important. However, having sound quality like that offered by today's high-end equipment is possible thanks to multi-channel AV receivers, processors and preamps , a key figure in advanced sound systems.
At Zococity you can find the best selection of multichannel preamps . We have both processors and multichannel AV receivers , so you can enjoy the best sound equipment to take your movies, series and multimedia content to a new level.
First of all, it is important to differentiate between the different devices that make up the family of multichannel preamps: receivers, amplifiers and processors work differently to achieve different results.
A multi-channel AV receiver is an amplifier that has a radio tuner. It allows to expand the audio signal and magnifies it, improving the sound experience in a home environment. On the other hand, a multichannel AV processor normally does not have an amplifier, unless it is specified in its features. These AV processors are in charge of managing the video signals, so it needs external stages to be able to reproduce sound.
Depending on the characteristics of the equipment that you want to include in your living room or video room, you must choose one scheme or another. Taking into account that the complexity of this equipment lies in the simultaneous use of several devices, our experts can help you obtain information directly from professionals to find the processor or receiver that best suits your preferences.
One of the most important aspects when choosing a multi-channel AV receiver or processor is to be clear about where they will be placed in the projection room or in the home. The size of the enclosure will directly affect the characteristics of the equipment to be used.
It is also very important to choose the ideal power and number of channels for the room in which we are going to use it, especially when we are talking about an AV receiver. As a general rule, you are looking for equipment that is capable of generating surround sound.
The standard currently is that of a 7.1 unit, but the multichannel preamps included in our catalog easily exceed that number , maximizing the possibilities for expanding the system in the future.
With the number of channels decided, it's time to look at the amplification power in the case of AV receivers. It is a vital point to enjoy a satisfactory experience, because the lack of power is one of the main obstacles to obtain that sensation of surround audio with forceful effects.
If we talk about power, we have to talk about impedance, the load associated with the power of the equipment. When a team has 100 watts, we are not talking about 100 watts per channel; Here we are talking about impedance, which can be in a range between 4 and 8 Ohms. The numbers dance can be chaotic, but the key is choosing the power of the AV receiver based on its impedance. Our team of experts can help you choose the best equipment for your salon by knowing which ones have the best channel-power-impedance-price ratio.
Brands like Marantz or Arcam are benchmarks in the field of home theater and multichannel preamps or processors.
