Any way to NOT need an A/V receiver?
Never thought I'd posting this question.
I justtttt got a Def Tech 5.1 system installed and really like it. I went from a much larger setup with towers, huge center, big home entertainment cabinet, to a smaller, on-wall speaker system with a smaller rack for my components. Reason being, we were expecting a baby and needed a play area.
Fast forward... and almost out of nowhere... I sold the house and bought a new one. The new house has a unique layout, and unfortunately, doesn't afford much space for a component rack.
Which brings me to my odd question......
Can I run 5.1 without a receiver? Time Warner can hide a small cable box behind the TV on the wall, but I have this awesome Yamaha receiver that I actually have to consider eliminating due to space.
If a solution is so obvious, I apologize. I've always run receivers.
I was also thinking about replacing my 5.1 def tech for a GoldenEar soundbar. Maybe.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
