    Hi,

    I have heard of the slew rate when it comes to amplifiers. Yet, although I'm pretty knowledgeable when it comes to home theater I still don't know what it means. Can anybody help?

    Dave Slew Rate = Fastest rate at which an amplifier can change the amplitude of its output signal measured in volts per microsecond with a higher figure being better (meaning that the amplifier can change more voltage in a given period of time, one microsecond).
