About.com 2013 Readers' Choice Awards The home theater receiver (also referred to as an AV Receiver) not only provides power to the speakers, but serves as an integrated control center for all of your components, often times providing both audio and video switching. In addition, even moderately priced home theater receivers provide features and quality that just a couple of years ago would have commanded sky high prices, but which brand is best?

I received a lot of nominations, but have narrowed them down to five finalists for your consideration. As a result, some great candidates didn't get enough nominations to make to the final five, such as Harman Kardon, Marantz, and Sony. Vote for your favorite from the following finalists, which are listed alphabetically.

Voting ends at 11:59pm EDT on March 19th - Winners will be announced on March 27th. You can cast one vote in each category per every 24 hour time period - so make sure your favorite wins! Also vote in the other 2013 Home Theater Readers' Choice Awards Categories:
