    help looking for a reciever

    So I'm thinking of putting together a small ht setup. What it would consist of is a left, right, and sub channel, a simple 2.1.

    I've been looking for a semi-decent budget reciever. All I really need in it is toslink input, 50w@8ohms/channel, and a rca subwoofer output.

    I was looking at a couple denon units on ebay and they're 2-channel but don't have toslink or subwoofer output (appear to).

    My budget would be around $250.

    Re: help looking for a reciever

    "Home theater" usually implies five channels, just FYI.

    I'd just search using the Toslink input as a criteria, it's definitely going to narrow down what you can get. Subwoofer outputs are irrelevant if you're using a plate amp, as almost all have high-level inputs anyway.

    Most decent subs/plate amps have a Left & Right input. You don't need to have a sub out to use a sub, just make sure it has a left right pre-out.

    A lot of hardcore Hi-Fi guys do this anyway because they think it sounds better...

    Re: help looking for a reciever

    That's what I intended to use but in the specs didn't list any kind of preamp output...

    I've never owned anything that has a sub out...works fine... But then again, I've never owned a receiver anyway

    Re: help looking for a reciever

    I wasn't sure if there was any real difference between a sub channel output or preamp output besides a built in crossover.

    What do you use instead? dedicated cd player/changer to amp?

    Yea... And a processor is just a multichannel pre-amp...

    Re: help looking for a reciever

    well, I forgot I set an auction snipe on this unit. I can still not pay for it, I guess....
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=140097732243

    I was really reconsidering this project as a whole but if words are favorable for this unit, I might as well use it for my current speakers to replace the little logitech processor for the z680 set.
