These days you can expect a lot more from an audio receiver than amplifying a conventional
audio source like a CD player and routing the signal to a pair of stereo speakers.
A premium audio receiver such as those made by Denon can manage a wide variety of
audio and video inputs, while routing signals to TVs, video monitors, and surround
sound speaker systems. High quality audio receiver systems such as Denon's AVR-1913
or AVR-3313CI receivers even allow you to establish multiple zones in your home
and send different signals to different zones.
Today's Many-to-Many Audio Receiver
A premium audio receiver like Denon's AVR-1913 7.1 channel receiver or AVR-3313CI
supports nearly any type of audio or video source. Both these Denon
audio video receiver models have connectors for analog audio, coaxial or
optical digital audio, composite video, and component video, along with multiple
High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) inputs and even a USB port. With such
versatile connectivity, these Denon audio receiver systems easily accommodate a
wide variety of set-top boxes, Blu-ray players, game systems, and portable media
players. Both models of
home receiver also support integration into your home ethernet network,
so you can use internet radio or play digital music files from your computer.
On the output side, the AVR-1913 audio receiver supports high definition video output
while also powering seven distinct surround sound speaker channels with 90 watts
each. The AVR-3313CI audio receiver also outputs high definition video, while delivering
a full 125 watts each to seven speaker channels. Either system makes an exceptional
receiver, with the AVR-3313CI adding a second subwoofer outlet for even
better bass performance. (This second subwoofer outlet is the difference between
7.1 and 7.2 receivers.
If five speakers and one subwoofer outlet are enough surround sound for you, we
also offer a 5.1 receiver.)
One Audio Receiver, Multiple Entertainment Zones
The multi-zone function in a premium audio receiver lets you create multiple "zones"
in your home and transmit different signals to the different zones. The AVR-1913
receiver lets you create two zones – the main one and a second zone to which
a separate audio signal can be sent (by reassigning the two surround sound back
channels to the second zone rather than the primary zone). With the AVR-3313CI you
can create three zones and have separate audio going to each of the three zones,
or have separate HDMI high definition video going to two different zones.
