I suggest that you look at the PSB line of in-wall speakers, which IMO are much better-sounding than the above.

The W-LCR speaker is especially good. Crutchfield carries them.

Since you are...

The IR (infra-red) jacks are not for audio; they are for extending the IR remote control signals to operate additional devices.

My advice would be to stay with the Music Hall turntable and invest in a much better cartridge. That is what I did.

Older direct-drive turntables are generally not very good, unless you get into...

The power rating of a speaker is the maximum power it can handle without overheating and burning up.

Those speakers are not very good, and neither is the turntable.

The amplifier might be OK, but it is low-powered and might not be so hot either.

You may need a cable with...

Your receiver only has so much total power available from the power supply.

Bi-amping would spread the avaiable power differently, but not in a helpful way.

To do proper bi-amping, you would...

I think you want the NYRIUS ARIES HDMI wireless transmitter/receiver.

I recommend the PSB line of wall/ceiling speakers.

They are the best ones I know of.

I think that the Polk and Klipsch speakers would be a mistake; not very good.

My suggestion would be the Music Hall MMF-2.3, which is $495 with cartridge installed.

The best thing I have found is the matting that RV strores sell to line cabinets so dishes do not slide around.

It is slightly tacky and is sort of a waffle foam and is around 1/8 inch thick.

It costs $699, and is comparable to units costing 5 times as much.

I suggest that you get the Bluesound Node 2. Check it out at Audio Advisor.

It has many good features, plus it is MQA-enabled.

MQA is the way to go for top-quality sound via streaming.
