4K Receivers

Your receiver is the central nervous system of your home theater, allowing you to control all your different audio video components from one unit. You want your receiver to be 4K compatible to achieve the best possible picture and soundscape.

Marantz’s SR5013, Yamaha’s Aventage RX A880, Integra’s DRX 7.1, Anthem’s MRx520, and Sony’s STR-ZA1100 are all high-quality 4K receivers that help you create the most immersive viewing experience in your home theater.

These receivers feature Dolby Atmos, the revolutionary audio technology that draws you into your favorite films by using the entire space of the room to make sounds appear out of thin air. You'll hear a helicopter directly above you or the sound of a creaking door behind you.

These receivers are compatible with 4K Ultra HD video to ensure that the picture matches the sharpness and specificity of the audio. Marantz, Yamaha, and Integra’s receivers also allow you to stream media through Bluetooth, Airplay, and Wi-Fi, and are Amazon Alexa-enabled so you can control them with your voice.


The lower frequencies of audio are what take it from something you hear to something you feel, and subwoofers are essential for full bass that gets under your skin and into your bones. Bowers & Wilkins’ DB series of subwoofers (pictures at the top of the blog) is the best in its class, with a 2000 Watt Class D amplifier that gives it astounding power while Aerofoil cones bring remarkable precision to the sound and reduce cabinet vibration.

A digital pre-amplifier ensures that the equipment is always operating at optimal levels, and features like Dynamic EQ and Room EQ modulate the technology to fit the specific needs of your home theater. These are also available in three colors, giving you the opportunity to find the one that best matches your theater décor.

REL's HT series is a more affordable option that still gives you booming bass, combining a lightweight 12” CarbonGlas driver with 500W Class D amplifier that keeps the unit cool as it provides dynamic audio.
