    You connect your radio, CD, DVD, computer and TV to a receiver (which has an amplifier built in), which then sends the output to loudspeakers. Musicians connect their guitars and microphones directly to amps, which have loudspeakers built in.

    Audio signals are usually very weak from the source so they need to be strengthened. Amplifiers can boost the signal and play it without another device. Loudspeakers need a device between them and the source to play the signal.

    As you mentioned :

    "Loudspeakers need a device between them and the source to play the signal. "

    Do you mean the device is amplifier?

    You posted this exact same question before to which you got two perfectly good answers already.



    I know one of them was mine but I can still say it was perfectly good, no?
