9.1 Receiver

Hi guys,

Need some advise.

A friend of mine just moved into a new used house. The previous owner had 7 in ceiling speakers installed in the main tv room and 2 speakers in the outside patio area in the backyard. My friend purchased a Samsung 4K 65 inch tv and currently he doesn't have a receiver so he is only using sound from the TV.

He is going to wait for Thanksgiving/black Friday/Xmas shopping sales..

In the meantime, wanted to do some research to see if there a good quality receiver available at a $1,000 range that will accommodate all 9 speakers? He can then check during the holidays for deals.

All of the speaker wires, etc. are still there for the speakers and all in one location. I suspect the previous owner most likely had a 9.1 receiver to control all the speakers (indoors and outdoors).

Any thoughts?

9.1 receiver with 1 zone as well as 9.1 receiver with 2 zones in case he wants the outside speakers to have different sound from the tv room.

quick search in google got me the below..

Pioneer SC-57 9.1 Channel Elite A/V Receiver with 3 zone - $2,100

Re: 9.1 Receiver

You will find that most receivers only have amplification for 7 channels and then you have to use outboard amps for the rest. You might be better off getting something like this http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-...ifier--300-815

Re: 9.1 Receiver

Thanks for the details. I will check it out. He would still need to get a receiver, right? With this new item, just attach it to the receiver? Any of the receivers I pasted above are worth getting?

Re: 9.1 Receiver

That multi channel amp makes it simple. All you would have to do is split a single output from any of those receivers that have zone outputs and analog outputs for each channel and you'll have more than you'll need.

Re: 9.1 Receiver

I can vouch for the Marantz SR7010. Outstanding audio quality and it will power 9 channels on its own.

Re: 9.1 Receiver

Thanks guys. I relayed the details to my friend. He is very excited to say the least. Now, it is just a matter of waiting for the holiday sales to start. Only a few more months away. Hard to believe!

Re: 9.1 Receiver

The main room has 7 "in ceiling" speakers??? What type of speakers are in the ceiling? I ask because the previous owner may have had some type of ATMOS setup

Re: 9.1 Receiver

That is a good point Andre, I didn't check when I was there for the house warming and my friend doesn't know the history or the brand name of the speakers. Does Atmos in ceiling speakers look any different from ordinary in ceiling speakers? There is no brand that I could gather from looking at it..

Re: 9.1 Receiver

I had to ask because I have Very rarely seen LCR (Left, Right, Center) speakers in the ceiling. There are a few "amiable" in ceiling speakers form company's like Martin Logan and Speakercraft, but still the imaging and soundstage would be off in my opinion. I can see it happening as a WAF (wife acceptance factor) problem where no freestanding speakers were allowed, but then in wall would be preferable to in ceiling. I would get a stepladder and figure out what exactly is up there before trying to determine what he did. Also while you're there find out if there is a WAF that needs to be dealt with

Re: 9.1 Receiver

Thanks for the suggestions Andre. Yeah, I will have to ask my friend to see what is up in the ceiling. I suspect it is just ordinary but hey you never know.

As for WAF, I suspect no free standing speakers..
