For music listening only...
...and a $700 budget, do I go with a 2.1 channel stereo receiver or an AVR? Seems opinions are all over the place on this one. Is there a general consensus?
Medium size room w/pair of wonderful old Bose 601 Series II's. Music is all in mp3's on iPod Classic 160gb running through Arcam Dr. Dock DAC.
Currently using Sherwood RX-4103 2-ch receiver but it has no sub out for my HSU VTF2 sub...thus a compromise "jury rig" setup. Time to upgrade. I was thinking the Emotiva Fusion 8100 receiver or Denon X2000 at $400 on closeout.
