  • searchin for an amp or receiver

    Hello CHT memebers. New here. Was informed by youra6 to sign up.

    Anyways i bought so wafs off him and now i am lookin for an amp.

    Some preferences is that i need a amp thag has a line in if possible and another port to add a sub later. Or have a sub input.

    I would like it not to be super heavy and taking up a lot of space and budget friendly if possible.

    Thanks fellow members hoping you guys can point me in the right direction

    :Welcome: to the forum.

    It would be helpful if we had a rough idea of budget limits. Also helpful would be a rough idea of how loud you like to listen, how far you will be sitting from the speakers, and whether you want a surround receiver (AV receiver) or a stereo receiver.

        so an amp that i got a quote from was 90 dollars. which is okay but i might as well drop a little extra.

        i sit close to my speakers ATM but they'll be on the floor or on the shelf as i have no space.

        i would like to prep for the future more than now but i dont want to lug something too heavy around. the speakers are already about 20 pounds. i plan on taking these home w/ me when i'm done living in this forsaken state

        Onkyo TX-SR705?
        Harman Kardon HK-3490?

          Those are two very different receivers. One is a stereo only, the other is for Home Theater but can be used for 2 channel. They are both pretty heavy, but quality usually is.

          1. What are you future applications going to be, 2 channel only or HT?

          2. Are these choices new?

          3. What are the differences in price?

            i do a bit of everything.

            yeah both are going to be heavy and hot when under use.

            i'm planning to upgrade to 5.1 if possible. 7.1 when i have my own place to myself.

            these choices are what i can find for now that are within budget.

            the onkyo is like $175 shipped
            the harmon is like $220 shipped

            i'm hoping to get better deals.

            i'm also looking @ a sub a Paradigm Subwoofer PS-1000V3 for about <~200

              For future home theater applications, the Harmon Kardon is out, then. It is a wonderful receiver, I just recommended one to my neighbor and he loves it. But you want to expand so that strikes the H/K from consideration.

              The Onkyo is also less expensive. I do not know much about this unit, but from reading it seems to be a decent budget piece.

                          Two channel only, the H/K all the way. They also have great HT receivers but I think that Onkyo and Marantz are a better value feature wise.

                          It won't get any cheaper than this place. They sell a lot of refurbs, but I haven't seen any complaints. This place has a good reputation.

                          Look around in our classified section for deals, too.

                            your classifieds are around my budget area if i could grab one.

                            i might go with the onkyo if the guy is local if not. i'll look @ others.

                            h/K is about $220 debating debating
