Need advice on upgrading
I have a 26 year old Rotel tuner/preamp and amplifier with multi rooms wired for speaker pairs with impedance matching volume controls. Amplifier lost right ch output. I am torn between buying separates i.e integrated amp, tuner or just going with a receiver for simplicity and cost saving like the Yamaha R-N803 Network Stereo Receiver. I like the WiFi, Bluetooth,streaming capabilities. Also I need the ability to play from my laptop my Itunes library CD collection through the system. I do that now by using the earphone jack on the laptop to RCA input on the Rotel tuner/preamp. Maybe with Wifi or bluetooth capability I could do it differently.
I do know that separates would get me closer to the audio quality I would like but my budget is tight. Another consideration and I realize this is a 2ch thread but there are comparably priced AVR's with maybe better audio specs. I would then be inclined to build out a home theater setup but mainly a 2 ch user.
My current speakers are low end hopefully to be upgraded in the future.
Any and all suggestions welcome.
