One of the often overlooked components of a home theatre is the A/V amplifier. People get so focused on the projectors and the speaker setups that they forget about this crucial component.
While it’s not technically required for a home theatre, it makes life so much easier and takes a lot of the complication out of things. If you’re not familiar with these types of amplifiers, you can think of them almost as organizers.
Let’s say you have 3 main inputs that you want to use at various times in your home theatre: a game system, a DVD player, and a Blu-Ray player. Without an amplifier, you’d have to switch between each of these manually, by unplugging them from your projector and plugging the other one in.
However, with an amplifier, you can plug in multiple devices, and it all goes through one output to the projector. So instead of having to fiddle around with wires and unplug things, you can simple switch the input with the press of a button and have access to either of your other devices.
The Pyle Hi-Fi amplifier supports both audio distribution and video distribution, making things easier in more ways than one. First, it comes with several HDMI input slots, and one output, which connects to the projector or screen.
This means that you can have 3 different devices all running to the projector off of one cable. It also accepts all of the different audio sources and runs them out to the speakers you have set up, so no matter which device you’re using, you’re going to get good quality sound.
The amplifier ensures that you’re getting the best quality image no matter what. If your screen or projector supports it, and the input supports it, then it’ll be passed through just fine.
It can go up to 4K resolution, which is considered ultra HD, and it even works with Blu-Ray video and 3D video. If you didn’t already have something set up to allow you to play music through your phone, then this amplifier can help you with that as well.
It can connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth, allowing you to instantly stream your music on your phone through the speakers you have set up in your home theatre. It supports all of the best audio systems, including 5.2 surround sound, meaning that whether you have a simple or complex speaker setup, this should be able to handle your needs.
