Morning guys, I am once again in need of some wisdom.
I posted the other day about having caught a deal on some motion 60xt's and am looking for an amp. With a little research and your help I find myself second guessing myself on setup and want to weigh my options moving forward.
Current setup: Sony STR ZA810ES, ML Motion 60xt's, Dynamo 700 woofer
I think I have come to the conclusion that the "big store" receiver was not the route to take and am considering hocking it all together. This brings me into my dilemma...
I will more than likely stick with a 2.1 system for an extended period of time. I primarily listen to music and the occasional movie but don't really have a huge interest in surround sound as a whole. That being said features of a receiver that would be nice to have would be Bluetooth for devices and be able to hook up to a DVD player and then back to the TV is need be.
In my searching I have come across a couple of different opinions on configuration, (forgive my wording here I may not be completely accurate) one being eliminate the receiver with all of the options from the "big store" and go with a processor/pre/amp and an amp to handle the two towers(what do I do to get the woofer back here?) - or - two, hock the current receiver and obtain a audiophile receiver that is more specialized with the pre-outs to eliminate the need for tethering a receiver, pre-amp, and amp.
Now with all of this in consideration and a budget, I want to do what makes the most sense. On the amp side of things I was looking at an XPA-2 or an A-300 depending on the route I go. Same way with the receiver, I'm open to suggestions on this if it makes sense in the grand scheme.
Thanks for your time and input all, I greatly appreciate it.
