My next door neighbor is a plumber and we barter for helping each other. I fix his computer, he does my plumbing work.
Today I was telling him about my new FIOS TV service and he asked me if I know anything about TV/stereos/etc.
I walked into his living room and he told me about this speaker system he'd recently bought. http://www.kirschloudspeakers.com/pr...s.php?value=20
He only paid $200, so it's not too bad. I didn't have the heart to tell him the truth.
The problem he has is the system is powered and has only analog inputs, two stereo inputs and a 5.1 input. His equipment only has digital outputs (a DVD player and a cable box).
I guess the easiest thing would be to find a cheap receiver that has two digital inputs and use the power amp on there and not on the Kirsch. Then use the sub out to feed the Kirsch subwoofer.
Any cheap receiver suggestions? Or any other cheap way to get from digital to analog (5.1)?
I gotta say...I took my SACD player and Steely Dan (Hey Nineteen) didn't sound horrible. It's no Nautilus 803/805 w/ HGS-18 like I have, but not too bad for someone that doesn't know better.
