The AV receiver is the essential device of the home theater system. So much so that our sound specialists consider it the heart of home cinema because its objective is to receive and collect the audio and video inputs and outputs, freeing up the wiring to our TV or projection system, in order to feed all the channels of the speakers that make up our set, and decode signals from display or sound sources such as a Blu-Ray player or a 4K media player , among others.
On the other hand, the AV receiver is in charge of amplifying, processing and decoding the most current formats such as Dolby Atmos or Auro 3D, as well as video formats such as 8K or Dolby Vision.
With this, brands such as Denon , Yamaha , Marantz or Arcam are pioneers and leaders in the manufacture of AV receivers that include the latest technologies . Consult with our home theater specialists and benefit from the best advice from the experts at Zococity.es.
Discovering what an AV receiver is for requires dedication and knowledge, and therefore, it is interesting to follow a series of recommendations that help us take advantage of all the functions of our brand new AV.
When we consider the installation of a home cinema system, the first thing we must take into account is the number of speakers that we want to place , depending on the dimensions and space available in the room. The most common thing is to start with a basic 5.1, although current AV receivers already start with 7.1 channels or higher in order to achieve greater configurability and expandability of the equipment. With this, the ideal is to find the balance between the AV amplifier receiver and the selected speakers to form our home theater.
The AV amplification power is one of the most important aspects when choosing it. Less power delivery than required will prevent us from enjoying a full listening experience, but to understand how power management works, we must first understand what terms like impedance imply. Similar to what happens with headphones and amplifiers , in the relationship between speakers and AV receiver we must look at the voltage delivered according to the impedance levels. For example, if the manufacturer declares 100 watts for each channel, it will be necessary to know if it refers to a load of 4.6 or 8 Ohms, since some brands tend to make up these figures that are not always true. Thus, it is best to review the impedance figures of the speakers that will make up the system and based on this select our AV.
Another interesting aspect when buying an AV receiver is the compatibility with the latest audio and video formats. It is important that the device is in charge of amplifying, processing and decoding the signals coming from Dolby Atmos, DTS-X or Auro 3D , being the most used in the field of audio. For their part and in terms of video, most AV receivers are already compatible even with 8K or HDR10 + in the most advanced models. Whatever the characteristics of your display source and speakers, it is worth investing in an AV that is one step ahead and up to date with technological advances and possible improvements and updates to our system.
With its wide range of digital -optical, coaxial and HDMI- and analog connections , we can connect all kinds of external devices such as Blu-Ray players, game consoles or TVs. It is also relevant to see if the AV receiver integrates wireless connectivity such as Bluetooth or AirPlay for iOS. These types of connections will allow the immediate reproduction of musical content through platforms such as Spotify or TIDAL. Some brands like Denon have compatibility with their own multi-room systems like HEOS, to facilitate streaming over WiFi.
AV receivers bring their own calibration or room acoustic correction systems that serve to equalize the sound based on the characteristics of our space. Calibration systems such as DIRAC , Audyssey or Ypao allow us to equalize our speakers to avoid errors and sound defects represented by very present bass or annoying treble.
