AVR - Audio Video Receiver - Build Quality: Part I


A Very Brief Look at Changes in Power Amps in AVRs

Dissecting the power amplifier requires an understanding of schematics and analog circuitry at the transistor level. I will not attempt to rank the power amplifiers from different manufacturers.
