Need advice on 2.1 system for music only
by 2ManyShoes - 11/7/11 8:19 AM
I need advice on a reasonably priced 2.1 receiver for the following purposes only:
- Play CDs in 2.1 (i.e., stereo plus sub)
- Connect to my iPod
This project started when I tried to add a subwoofer to my 20-year old JVC system to listen to Wagner operas. Unfortunately, there's no sub-out on my receiver. My research tells me I either need to replace the receiver or do some hot-wiring I'm not comfortable with in order to add the sub. If I'm going to buy a new one, I might as well get one that will connect with my iPod Classic.
There are decent 2-channel receivers (e.g., Onkyo TX-8255, Pioneer Elite SX-A6-J, etc.) for under $200 that would do for sound quality, but they lack either a dedicated sub output, an iPod connector, or both.
Can anyone recommend a good, inexpensive receiver (say, under $300) that will do these two things? I've been looking at the Denon AVR-1912, but it's out of my price range and built for 7.2 sound anyway.
Thanks for any help!
