The Anchor of Your Home’s Audio/Video Installation
If you have an investment in high-quality speakers, whether they are active monitors, bookshelf, in-walls, or floor standing towers, it’s not something you have to change or upgrade often. While there certainly are innovations in speaker design, a good speaker will serve up good audio for a long time. An amplifier is also a component you may not have to change unless you require more power or a better match with a different set of speakers.
When it comes to home theater and audio-video receivers and processors, the situation is different. In fact, the word receiver is a misnomer from the days that they were essentially integrated amplifiers with an AM/FM tuner, as they are the nerve centers of many of today’s A/V systems. Technology has moved quickly in this area, and a top-end model from just a few years ago may not have the features that can carry your system into the future.
Why might you want a receiver or processor upgrade for your audio-video installation in Woodside, CA? Let’s explore some of the latest features in these multifaceted workhorses.
