    please suggest a receiver

    Hi there,

    I live off-grid and am putting together a home audio system that runs on 12 volt electricity. I am interested in buying a car stereo that would work for my configuration. Right now I am looking at a nice set of shelf speakers by Wharfedale, a helix b five for amping and I would like some advice on a receiver.

    I would like a unit that is electrically efficient, will play FM stations, has more than one input (ipod and computer, maybe sat radio at some point), works with a remote and has demure styling (no flashing lights, don't even want colored lights). Something that will allow bluetooth connectivity for the iphone would be cool too (calls and/or music).

    Your advice will be greatly appreciated.

    b

    I like the pioneer 80 PRS. What do folks think is a good competitor to this unit... something that has clean and simple styling.

    If I were to hook this up to the helix B Five, two real nice book shelf speakers, two sets of sattelite speakers and a sub-woofer, what other primary components do I need?

    Also, is there a reasonable way to wire what I list above, as well as two more sattelite speakers for occasional outdoor use?

    Keep in mind I am trying to be very energy efficient.

    Thanks,

    b

    A nice old school Alpine would be sweet like a 9813 or 9815 because of built in amp plus tons of EQ features and the ability to turn off all the lights...

    Efficiency isn't going to be any different between receivers. If you're not using it to drive speakers they draw very little current.
