A soundbar is a speaker system that is popular among people who want to improve the sound quality of their television without purchasing an advanced home theater system. Most people nowadays have an AV receiver in their house and use it for connecting numerous devices to their systems.
Cutting out wires wherever possible, particularly in audio systems, is a distinctive sign of today’s time. After all, those wires take up so much space… If you have wireless speakers, try to connect them to your receiver, and you will hear no worse sound quality than your wired ones!
So, you are the happy owner of new audio/video equipment, and are you wondering now how to connect the receiver to a TV? While HDMI is usually the go-to option, it’s not always available or feasible.
An AV receiver is not only the most important component of any home theater system but also the most complex. Therefore, its correct setting plays an important role. Without proper calibration and configuration, the audio and video output can be subpar and fail to deliver an immersive viewing experience.
