3 Audio/Video Receiver Brands to Consider
If you’re building a home theater system in your Huntsville, AL home, the first thing you’ll need isn’t necessarily the big screen or speakers—it’s the receiver. The receiver is the centerpiece of your home theater system. Also known as an AV receiver or surround sound receiver, it provides the outputs and inputs for each device and instructs your speakers what surround sound to play.
The core features of a receiver are the power output, surround sound formats, and connectivity. An excellent receiver will also offer high-resolution audio, automatic speaker set-up, iPod/iPhone compatibility with Bluetooth, and Internet streaming. Technology moves fast, so you’ll want a receiver that offers expandability and new features, just in case.

Bring the Entertainment Outside This Spring
We know it’s cold and wet this winter in Tennessee, but warmer spring weather is right around the corner. We’re all looking forward to spending more time outdoors. Relaxing in the patio, planting new annuals, and lots of other outside activities beckon to us soon. Since we’re blessed with a relatively mild climate in Nashville, how about bringing some of our audio-video entertainment outdoors for these activities?
Bringing music and video entertainment outside is a great way to maximize the enjoyment of your outdoor spaces. If you have an outdoor kitchen, imagine grilling to great tunes. Or how about inviting friends over to catch the upcoming March Madness basketball outside on the patio with your favorite drinks and food? It’s all possible with an outdoor audio-video setup, and it can be an extension of your current installation or something totally independent.
