    I have a quick question. I am buying an HK AVR 225 and there is no option for A/B speaker switching. What exactly does that do. Also there is no component video connections, is that something I can do without??

    Thanks,

    If you don't need to switch component connections with your receiver, you don't need it. In other words, if your TV has enough component inputs to handle all of the equipment you have, and if you're not terribly inconvenienced by having to switch inputs on both your TV and receiver, then it's not an issue.

    A/B speaker switching allows you to have two sets of speakers connected to your receiver, and you can usually only play one set of speakers at a time. I suppose this would be useful for A/B comparisons (hence the name) or maybe you'd use it if you had seperate sets of speakers for music and home theater.
