Adding a new stereo amplifier to your system can take your sound to the next level, and choosing the right one is one of the most important decisions you’ll make in your quest for the perfect audio setup. Most receivers already house some form of an internal amplifier, so what reasons are there to purchase a separate unit? Well, in the words of Steve Guttenberg of CNET: “Just two things: the power and the glory.” Enough said.
Now let’s get down to brass tacks. What do you need to consider when choosing the right stereo amplifier? First, let’s talk power. A general rule of thumb is to choose an amplifier that can deliver the right amount of power to match your speakers. Another big factor to consider is connections – does the amplifier you’re looking at have the right inputs for what you’re planning to plug in?
There are a lot of other technical details that can come into play with amplifiers, like Total Harmonic Distortion + Noise (hint: lower numbers are better), Signal to Noise Ratio (bigger numbers win here), Crosstalk (larger number = greater the stereo separation), and more. If your head is spinning, don’t despair. Give us a call, shoot us an email, or stop on by the store, and we’ll be happy to talk audio until the cows come home (it’s what we live for).
