Commonly known is the AV receiver (also called surround receiver), this is a multi-channel amplifier with built-in radio. It is the centre of a modern hi-fi / home theater system. AV receivers usually processes 5.1 and 7.1 signals; newer models master even Dolby Atmos, Auro-3D or DTS: X. A built-in processor provides the so-called Bass Management and sonic room-calibration through Audyssey or similar systems. Most models offer music streaming, Internet radio, DLNA and UPnP. And, as in stereo, also in the audiovisual field – separate AV preamps and multichannel power amps are available – which tonally has its merits.
To all English speaking friends of LowBeats
Thanks for visiting LowBeats Magazin. At present it is an all German language site, with just the odd feature and review in English. We are working hard to present much more content in English and aim eventually to have a full dual language magazine for our readers. In the meantime please bear with us whilst we work to achieve this. It will be worth the wait!
