  • who makes a mini amp w/ remote

    Does anyone make a small amp, 2-3 channel, like the Gizmo with IR (remote) volume control?

    The a used Pop-Pulse T40i or T70i comes to mind...

      Looks like Cambridge Audio has just come out with a small form factor 2.1 receiver

        I've been looking for an option like this also.

        My criteria are:
        Sub out
        Built in crossover (variable would be nice)
        Small-ish form factor (more compact than standard AVR)

        This has been impossible to find so far.

        If I forgo the remote requirement, that leaves me with Gizmo (which I have), or the Virtue One amp modded to have a set crossover.

          This may be out of the "affordable" criteria, but I was reminded of this CD/Amp:

          (it does have a remote)

            There's also the Peachtree Decco, which is a nice integrated with a high quality DAC.

            At the lower end there are lots of small systems from Onkyo, Denon, NAD, Yamaha and others - that show up under the shelf system category on most retailer websites. I ended up getting a JVC EXD5 for my wife when I did a search for a small receiver with a remote and CD built in. We've been very happy with it, having gotten it on clearance for $199.

            If I were looking for myself, this NAD, would be something I'd be considering.
