AMP: Amplifies analogue signals for reproduction through speakers.
Receiver: Receives FM/AM 'radio' signals as well as amplifes
Processor: Processes digital signals, converting them into analogue signals - typically 5.1, but do not amplify.
AVamp combines job of processor and amplifier.
Entry level is generally an AVreceiver or an AVamp.
Processor plus amplifier(s) is generally top-end.
