What is a receiver used for?
An audio/video receiver (AVR) is a consumer electronics component used in a home theater. Its primary purpose is to receive audio and video signals from a number of sources, processing them to drive loudspeakers and a display.
A merchandiser receiver handles and processes stock in a warehouse or retail environment. Their primary duty is to maintain an efficient flow of merchandise, which might involve documenting, storing, locating and distributing stock within a store or warehouse, depending on the specific needs of the employer.
- Jonas goes to The Giver and receives his first memory, that of sledding down a hill in the snow. He also receives the memory of sunburn, his first encounter with pain in a memory.
- The Importance of Memory. One of the most important themes in The Giver is the significance of memory to human life. At some point in the past the community in The Giver decided to eliminate all pain from their lives. To do so, they had to give up the memories of their society's collective experiences.

Simply enough, a receiver has a broadcast radio tuner included in the same chassis as the preamplifier and amplifier circuits, a combination which, without a tuner, would make up an integrated amplifier. If the preamp is also left out, what's left is just called the amplifier.
- First, make sure your receiver has "pre-out" jacks on its rear panel (if yours doesn't have one, you won't be able to hook up a separate power amp like the XPA). Then it's just a matter of hooking up your speaker wires to the XPA.
- Pre amps are primarily used very next to input device like microphone etc. A preamp is a very low noise amplifier that takes a very small signal and boosts it enough to be a sufficient input for a more powerful amplifier. A power amp is that more powerful amplifier and is used to drive actuators (like a speaker).
- The essence of modification of a tuner car is an attempt to extract the greatest possible performance—or the appearance of high performance—from the base motor vehicle through the addition, alteration or outright replacement of parts.
In simple terms, think of channels as the number of speakers that should be connected. 2 channel - is a typical stereo, 2 speakers right/left. Many 2 channel stereo's may have a speaker selector on the front "A/B" this means you could connect a second pair (stereo) of speakers for another room.
- 7.1 surround sound is the common name for an eight-channel surround audio system commonly used in home theatre configurations. It adds two additional speakers to the more conventional six-channel (5.1) audio configuration.
- This is usually achieved by using two or more independent audio channels through a configuration of two or more loudspeakers (or stereo headphones) in such a way as to create the impression of sound heard from various directions, as in natural hearing.

The audio/video (a/v) receiver and amplifier assembly in a home theater does the same job as the receiver and amplifier assembly in any stereo system: It receives signals from various input devices, like a VCR, DVD player or satellite dish.
