Radio and radio receiver are often used specifically for receivers whose output consists only of sound, although other types of receivers, such as television receivers, are technically radio receivers as well.

Generally, receiver refers to a tuner, a preamplifier, and a power amplifier in one box. Some older receivers come with a loudspeaker. It is a common component in a high-fidelity or home-theatre system although some audiophiles believe that a separate tuner may provide superior reception and sound. The receiver is generally the nerve centre of a sophisticated home-theatre system providing selectable inputs for a number of different audio components like turntables, compact-disc players, and tape decks and video components like video-cassette recorders, DVD players, video-game systems, and televisions. Modern receivers tend to omit inputs for turntables and cassette decks and, instead, provide signal processors to give a more realistic illusion of listening in a concert hall. Digital audio S/PDIF connections are also common today.

Some modern receivers can send audio out to seven loudspeakers and an additional channel for a subwoofer and often include connections for headphones. Receivers vary greatly in price, support stereophonic or surround sound, and a high-quality unit can be relatively inexpensive--$200 US or less. Because modern receivers are purely electronic devices with no moving parts unlike electromechanical devices like turntables and cassette decks, they tend to offer many years of trouble-free service. In recent years, the home theater in a box has become common, which often integrates a surround-capable receiver with a DVD player. The user simply connects it to a television, perhaps other components, and a set of loudspeakers.

Self-powered radios with a hand-cranked generator are used in developing nations or as part of an emergency/disaster preparedness kit.
