Home Audio Receivers

signal component stereo control

The traditional concept of using home audio receivers has historically been the standard home stereo. Most common home stereos are loaded with a radio and often a CD or DVD player. Component systems have separated power amplifiers and radio receivers. External functions are controlled by each individual component and routed through the power amplifier.

The popularity of the home theater system during the past decade has created a market for a niche in this audio technology. The audio outputs in most contemporary integrated home audio receivers are the same as traditional stereo home audio receivers. They operate on the same concepts, with the exception of the video capacity of newer home audio receiver models.

It is important to inspect the component that you are using to generate the signal. Never use any connection that is a speaker outlet. These outlets are powered and will damage the device that will be connected to them. Occasionally these powered outlets will be female RCA connectors, but it is rare. The connection to use from the initial component is the audio output port. In most cases the originating signal device is a VCR/CD/DVD player or some type of a cable signal box.

Connect the other end of the cable to the auxiliary input or the CD/tape player input on the home stereo. Make sure to set the home stereo function on the input that you choose. The feed volume levels of the line signal should be consistent with the line level signal volume that is set by the component manufacturer. If the central device has a remote with volume control capability, the remote control should work to control system volume.

In addition to this particular component setup, if the home audio receiver has a headphone jack or audio outputs, a line level signal can be run to a separate power amplifier and “daisy-chained” through the auxiliary audio inputs on that device, also. This works well when the primary home audio receiver is stereo, which really only means “to increase” (and not 2 speakers). The line running from the headphone or audio outputs can be run to a home audio receiver that will extend the signal to a larger speaker set, allowing a passive high/mid/low frequency range control.

Depending on the equipment that is available, with the proper connectors and adapters, it is a relatively simple process to enjoy a good quality home audio listening experience.
