Selecting Home Audio System Receivers

[sc:buttonstyle ]

What Do You Look For in Home Audio System Receiver Features?

When selecting home audio equipment, look beyond what you currently use your home system for. Selecting a system with more versatility should be the goal.

Making Sense of the Jargon


3D TV Explained

Should you go with a 5 channel or 7 channel theater receiver? How many watts? Those are the basic questions that come to mind first. Look beyond these to really open up the possibilities.

What’s available? Well, if you like internet radio for example, does the system have wifi or does it have a network cable port. The answer should be: Both. Wifi will give you the bandwidth you need for most options. You can stream Pandora, Rdio or Spotify easily over wireless. Wireless also works fine for most Netflix or Hulu movies. You may want to use a network cable though for connections between components like a hard disk movie library of if you plan on streaming 3D or 4K high definition movies. Bandwidth beyond what current wireless specs are capable of are better suited for some of these options.

Since the technology offerings for media are moving so quickly (think vinyl to 8 track to cassette to cd on audio), you don’t want to get too embedded with one technology and especially if that technology has been around for awhile. Saying, for example, that all you want is the DVD or Blueray playing feature will eventually limit what you can do with your system. The format media comes on is moving forward always. Buy the latest 4K and 3D capabilities and you’re assured that you’ll be safe for several years. Something else will come out over the next 3 years. You can bet on it.

Look For Maximum Versatility

Look for systems with plenty of HDMI inputs. You’ll need those for connecting devices. Google’s Chromecast, for example, is an HDMI Wireless connection device that opens up streaming from other devices like tablets, smartphones and other compatible entertainment appliances. Consider if the system has built in Apple AirPlay as well if your family is more Apple product centric. Some of the latest Android smart phones may also support MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) that uses a micro USB to HDMI cable to a special port labeled MHL allowing you to stream media to the TV and offers control of the phone from your remote control as well as keeps the phone charged and awake.

Keep in mind that all theater systems do not offer support for phonographs as a standard option. If you have a collection of vinyl that you want to play, you’ll want to ask about support for playing records. You may need a phono pre-amp component if the system does not support it natively. You don’t want to find out too late that you’ll need another piece of equipment.
