Please help me choose a black box
Hey guys and gals !!
I currently have an active speaker system that is staying for the foreseeable future , and a new vizio p-65 .
I am currently looking for a new processor/pre to basically operate the surround speakers from the tv .
I've looked at a few that will fit in a 6" shelf under the tv and have come up with the Cambridge azur 551 (operating in pre-amp mode) and the outlaw 965 , both are around 500 new .
I'm not really too sure what I'm looking at , and all I know is I need a trigger out and Rca or balanced to connect the speakers .
It seems I could get a better Denon/onkyo/marantz reciever for around 1000 new that will work as a pre , but theyre all around 8" tall these days .
i could put a cable hole through the wall and find room to hide it in a kitchen cabinet directly behind the tv
so theyre not ruled out .....
im currently researching adding atmos , but i doubt ill be allowed to add more speakers in the room .
however it seems the better items available have this feature anyway , as well as arc which i guess would be preferable to take advantage of the output from the vizio and would help with a "kitchen" installation .
any ideas what i should go with ?
