Two Audio Systems - One Zone

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I need some clarification. I am upgrading my room and thinking of doing the following speaker setup:

1) 2.1 System (book shelf speakers and sub)
---Def Tech 450 + Sub (with inputs and output)
2) 5.1 System
---Mirage Nanosat 5.1

The Receiver is probably going to be a Denon AVR-791

Is it possible to have both 1 and 2 with one receiver ? If so, is this what multi source receivers are used for ? Both will be taking inputs from a PC. I haven't decided if I want a have a HTPC dedicated yet in my room. Hence as of now I have one system that will either use setup 1 for music or setup 2 for movies. If your asking why don't I just have the 5.1? It is because I want to have a proper 2.1 sound system facing me so I can use it on my table while the 5.1 will be positioned when I sitting on my bed watching TV/Movie/etc..

It will be great if you guys can tell me if I am heading the right direction.

Thanks,
Devan

Yes. You may combine both in Denon 791.
Some 'Pure Audio' , 'Direct', buttons on AV receiver allow you to play regular CD to original 2.0 when pressed.
Other options in the Reciver will process the same CD signal to 2.1 or 5.1 by choice, Neo 6 ... etc. .
Listen and try these options to meet your demands and taste in CD / phono listening.
IMHO, may be the LR front in Mirage Naosat 5.1 are too small & weak.
If you have some good old stereo speakers, try them in the front and play some pure audio CD.
If you like them than the Mirage fronts, re-setup surround for better sound in HT.
