As I mentioned in another thread I recently purchased a pair of Technics SB-C700 bookshelf speakers, rated 50-100W at 4 ohms.
An old AVR I was given is only rated down to 6 ohms and isn't cutting it.
I'd like a solution that:
1) Has built in Phono support for my turntable
2) Supports streaming solutions
3) Doesn't take up lots of space (I.e., receiver, amp, Phono amp, streamer, etc)
I started my search with the new NAD C368, but quickly discovered I didn't like the Class D sound. This lead me down an integrated amplifier path, except all of the solutions spike in cost and don't support anything other than optical inputs.
I did stumble across a Technics solution - termed a network audio amplifier http://www.technics.com/us/products/...er-su-g30.html
(I wasn't looking at Technics because I purchased Technics speakers; it came up in Google results). Problem is the product retails for $4k.
Unless I'm missing something my options are:
1) Find a digital solution
2) Buy an AVR and add a separate amp rated for 4 ohms
3) Go with an integrated amp, and add on something like a Sonos Connect
4) Go with the $4k option
