HOW DO YOU BENEFIT FROM PURCHASING SEPARATE COMPONENTS OVER A RECEIVER?
When you buy an A/V receiver, you do not get the flexibility of improving a circuit, adding power, or reconfiguring your system.Another benefit is improved performance. It’s the direct result of separate isolated power supplies for each unit. When a tuner, preamp processor and power amplifier all share the same power supply- as they do in a receiver- there are varying demands constantly placed on that supply. This ever-changing load is like having multiple water faucets open in your home and then wondering why you can’t get a good, strong shower at the same time.
Also because of better parts quality, we know separate components are more reliable. That is why for example, Rotel offers the longest warranties. 5 Years parts and labor on all electronics and 2 years on mechanical devices.
