AV-receivers have relied exclusively on the traditional form factor of rack mounted equipment. This standard width has since started to live life of its own audio although consumer audio is nowadays very rarely mounted in racks. After the era of multi box hifi setups and with proliferation of compact audio systems the customers have good reasons to ask whether the AV-receiver format is still relevant or not.
Current televisions are quite large already and are getting bigger all the time. They occupy ample amounts of wall surface which is hard to utilize in any way. Piggyback AV-receiver makes use of this dead space by hooking itself in the backside of a TV. The device can be used for wall-mounting the TV or it can be hung on a freestanding TV as well. The device is attached to the standard VESA 400 x 400 mm mounting pattern found in all large TVs. Piggyback AV-receiver is ideally suited for households without TV stands or AV furniture.
All the interconnect cabling is hidden behind large TV screen. Flat and wide format makes cabling easier as all connectors are in one row. Amplifier also features AC outlet for routing power for the TV with a shorter cable run. Especially when speaker cabling is installed inside the walls, Piggyback does its share in building extremely nice and tidy setup.
The receiver is able to drive 7.1 multi channel speaker system or provide multiple channels of amplification and filtering for a pair of high-end speakers.
