Minimalist modern 2.1 integrated amp?
Am looking for a minimalist integrated amp that is modern/up to date, in terms of:
(MUST) being able to split out low frequencies into a sub out
(NICE TO HAVE) taking optical or coaxial input
(NICE TO HAVE) bluetooth input for smartphones etc
I would have thought this was a fairly standard product these days, but generally I can only find receivers that do this. And they aren't exactly minimalist in terms of feature sheet or configuration.
I say minimalist as in I am just looking for an affordable price, basic functionality and some clean watts, dont need to impress anyone with brand name or blast sound in a nightclub. Will be running a small sub and a pair of Paradigm Millenia one speakers in a modest sized study. Not the world's largest speakers, but possibly a little current-hungry.
So far have only come across a couple of NAD models (3020 etc) but the reviews on them suggest a high probability of bugginess and some questions as to whether they run out of juice quickly and cont produce good dynamics. So I nix those, unless I get new information. But am looking for any other options.
