Odd question I know, but is there a 2 channel integrated amp that has component outs? What I want is to set up a simple 2 channel set up with a smallish TV and Xbox 360 in my basement. It will be going to my Hitachi 32HDL51 LCD. It has 2 HDMI so my upconverting DVD player goes to one HDMI, the other is taken up by the HDTV box, sound goes to my current reveiver (AVR125) and this works fine.
now for the but
But, my Xbox 360 w. component outs has no home except the TV...and the kids don't like no having the sound come from the big tower speakers. Now I know I can get a new receiver with HDMI and Comp outs and the world is a happy place. I was looking at a Marantz sr5001, but since it is mostly used for music and there is no real need for 7.1 surround is there a better option out there? I basically want better 2 channel without giving up the nice switching that a receiver offers, but with better sound quality from a dedicated amp.
Just bite it and get a rec. and use the pre outs and then get a dedicated 2 channel...or is there something in one nice package?
