av receiver

Audio/video receiver (AVR)
An audio/video receiver (AVR) is a consumer electronics unit used in a home theater.
Its primary purpose is to receive audio and video signals from a number of sources and process them to drive loudspeakers and a display.
Possible displays include, television, monitor, or video projector while the inputs may come from, television, satellite receiver, radio, DVD players, Blu-ray Disc players, VCRs, and video game consoles.
The AVR source signal and other settings, including volume, are normally set by a remote controller.
