Top 10 Best Receiver Audio Videos
for December 2022

Receivers are integral to any home audio system, and choosing the right one can be a daunting task. We test audio receivers for sound quality, including bass, clarity, and volume, as well as ease of use, such as ease of setup, features, and connectivity.

Receivers, also known as A/V receivers, are the brain of an audio system. They connect all of your speakers, subwoofers, and other devices to the amplifier, which sends amplified sound to the speakers. Receivers use a variety of technologies, including digital and analog inputs, to simultaneously connect multiple devices to the amplifier.

Receivers come in a variety of styles, including home theater receivers, surround sound receivers, and stereo receivers. Receivers connect wirelessly via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, and can also be used to stream music from your phone, tablet, or computer.

Receivers, like all electronics, can malfunction, so it's important to test them first. Our testing lab evaluates receivers for sound quality, ease of use, and features. Here are the best audio receivers you can buy in 2022.
