5.1 and 5.2-Channel Home Theater Receivers - NO SPEAKERS

5.1-channel home theater receivers are popular because they provide six-channels of 100% lossless audio Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio surround sound processing and five channels of amplification to drive a matching 5.1 home theater speaker system at an affordable price. You also get multiple HDMI inputs to easily switch among source components, and Audio Return Channel (ARC) for HDMI connection to your television or projector. 5.1 surround sound is perfect for filling most small to average size rooms (5.1 Surround Speakers Setup). 5.2-channel receivers allow the future connection of a second optional powered subwoofer for improved bass.

Below is a list of 5.1-channel and 5.2-channel home theater receivers currently on the market. In addition to buying a surround sound receiver, you will need to separately supply or purchase (and properly connect) a 5.1 surround sound speaker system, plus enough decent quality speaker wire (perhaps in-wall rated?) to run from the back of the receiver to each of five surround speakers, plus a subwoofer cable to run from the back of the receiver to the sub, and perhaps some HDMI cable(s) to connect source components and your TV or projector. Network-ready receivers will need an ethernet cable run from your network hub to the back of the receiver. And don't forget to leave adequate space around the top and sides of the receiver for adequate heat dissipation.
