What makes a Good Receiver?
An AV Receiver is not your ordinary sound system. A sound bar or a Hifi might seem like great ( and cheaper ) alternatives to hook up your TV . However when compared to AV receiver the sound quality differs. An AV Receiver paired with entry level speakers will most likely out-sound the alternatives in the market. Thus the main reason for their continued existences in the face of 'competitors'.
The strength of an AV receiver is the connectivity. With the advancement in technology, AV receivers bought a decade ago would be obsolete. Today, most devices uses HDMI connections. Thus the number of HDMI inputs and output would make or break an AV Receiver.

There are some models that requires you to switch on the AV Receiver to watch TV and there are those that provide pass through feature. With pass through features in the VSX 924K , you can now simply switch on the TV and enjoy the show; even though it is connected to the AV Receiver.

Pass through is a great feature as there will be times you would prefer a quieter environment to watch the show. Plus it does help with the electricity bills.
