Good evening. I am in need of some assistance, please feel free to offer up some suggestions. I am in need of a receiver to power my outdoor / patio speakers.
Speakers are installed and ready. 1 pair of Klipsch in ceiling speakers.
Wires are already laid throughout the landscaping, picking up 1 AWR-650 and 1 planter that has a speaker inside. I think, I need to find the wires, I have 2 additional sets of wires hidden in the landscaping which would allow for 4 total outdoor speakers. Previous homeowner had the place wired.
Patio and Outdoor have separate volume controls. This AVR (Audio controller?) will be behind my LCD TV in the living room in the standard pre-built TV hole (Looks to be made for the CRT days) in the wall above the fireplace. The reason I mention this is because I do not want a large AVR back there.
1) Juice to power the speakers
Not too worried about this though.
2) Internet Streaming (Pandora, etc)
This is probably just as equal as #1
3) My needs are PURELY from an Audio standpoint. Not quality of Audio per say, but there is NO video needs at all here.
I've come across the Onkyo TX-8050 - https://www.shoponkyo.com/detail.cfm?productid=TX-8050&modelid=9&group_id=1&detail=1&ext_war=1
and it appears to be the ticket, but I was looking for something a bit cheaper. Used is fine!
Anything out there that has streaming capabilities on the cheap?
