This is my first post. I just relocated and my GFs AVR HDMI card crapped out. It was really my fault as I plugged in a 2x4 splitter and accidentally used the wrong power supply :-( Bad mistake! Perhaps a blessing in disguise?
I just unloaded my last load of vintage gear into the garage: 1970s and early 1980s receivers and integrated amps by Kenwood, Sansui, Marantz and NAD. I sat and wondered if I could make use of this great sounding gear and setup my own 7.1 / 7.2 surround sound system???
This is a great sounding room that adjoins the kitchen area--- a perfect rectangle with 10' high ceilings. I've already created a nice sounding stereo L/R setup in the front, below the TV--- NAD 3140 with old GNP Valkyries. There is another stereo L/R setup on the other end, Kenwood 6700 with some old Vandersteen 2cs mounted on their sides, high on a ledge. In between the two areas sits a relatively inexpensive, newer Polk subwoofer. All systems are fed from my PC and iphone.
In between and already mounted high on the wall are some standard out of the box, Theater Logic SL & SRs (coming from the AVR). There is also matching center and front L & R speakers...
I want to use my existing front (1 &2) and rear (6&7) setup and the sub (.1)... in addition to adding 2 more integrated amps - One for center (3) and another for the SR & SL (4&5) ----
Is this possible with the UMC 1?If not, is there an alternative solution? Thanks in advance!
