An AVR (audio/video receiver) is a vital part of home theater systems. It is responsible for playing back videos and can be utilized to play music in one central location or various parts of your home. If entertainment is a priority in your home and you and your loved ones enjoy movie nights, live fights on TV, and various music applications, shop for an AVR that will be best suited for your needs.

The Output Is Dependent Upon The Model

An AVR will possess channel capabilities, which essentially refers to the number of speakers that can be utilized during a viewing or a listening session. For instance, if you plan on adding a home theater system that contains five speakers, then you will need to utilize an AVR model that possesses at least a five-channel capability.

Of course, you may currently own a set amount of speakers and plan on investing in additional ones in the future. With an expansion in mind, purchase an AVR unit that will be able to accommodate the additional speakers that you plan on using with your home theater.

An electrical contractor will need to assist with installing the wiring and if a lot of electrical components need to be hidden behind wall panels or secured along paneling, having an electrician's help will ensure that the AVR and other components are safely and accurately installed.

You May Want A Multiple Room Setup

Your AVR will be placed inside of one room in your home, which will likely be the place where you spend most of your time watching movies and playing music. There may be occasions in which you would like to experience the surround sound, without being pinned to one room.

If you or one of your loved one's enjoys streaming music and listening to it on a mobile device or if you are the type of person who unwinds with some soft dinner music while enjoying a meal in your dining room, a DVR that can perform several functions at once will be your best option. With this type of equipment, your spouse can enjoy watching a football game, your children can listen to music while spending time in their bedrooms, and you can relax with some classical music being piped into the area where you are preparing dinner.

By knowing how many components will be hooked up to your home theater system and the actual applications that you will be using during each entertainment session, each person in your household will be provided with a viable way to enjoy the rich sound, while viewing or listening to something. In addition to the electrical components, purchase some reclining chairs, end tables, pillows, and other comfort items that will make your theater system enjoyable to use.
