For the biggest and best home theatre audio, you need a top-quality receiver or amplifier, and we've analysed Amazon Australia's pricing to see how it stacks up.
The speakers in TVs are acceptable for very basic audio, such as watching the news, but if you’re a fan of epic blockbusters, explosive video games or impactful music, what you really need is a receiver or an amplifier to handle it all.
If you’re confused by the distinction, an amplifier (more or less) does what it suggests – takes an audio signal from your video source and amplifies it. While a receiver does the same, it also manages the output from multiple sources, such as Blu-ray players, home video game consoles or set-top boxes.
We’ve run the numbers on the pricing for amplifiers and receivers from Amazon Australia, as well as the most competitive prices from a selection of Australian online retailers so you can grab the best deal on your next critical home theatre components.
Prices were last checked between 20 Dec 2017 and 22 Dec 2017 and may be subject to change. Prices include any discounts but exclude potential shipping charges.
