2.0 or 2.1 super-budget system for mixed music/AV.
I'm planning out a future system and I would like to hear from someone who has done anything similar.
Basically, I am thinking of a class D amp with some cheap bookshelf speakers and a cheap powered sub. I'll be mainly using this for movies paired up with my Vizio PQX and secondarily for streaming music, and occasionally a turntable. I'm not expecting the world or audiophile grade fidelity.
I have been into vintage components in the past and I had a variety of vintage receivers, integrated amps, turntables, and speakers. I got rid of everything I ever had except a Marantz 2235 and a pair of Epicure 100W speakers that I restored the walnut veneer of and refoamed/recapped.
Eventually, when I buy a bigger house, I would like to make the EPIs the main speakers in my setup. I don't think I'll ever want a 5.1 or more surround setup. I enjoy a good stereo set with good imaging.
Back to my temporary 2.1 rig...
I was thinking something like the Dayton DTA-Pro DAC/50wpc digital amp paired with their AMT ribbon-tweeter bookshelf speakers. For a powered sub to go with it I have not a clue what would work.
If there are other, better options in the price range I'm thinking ($500 or less all-in) let me know.
