hi guys, i'm moving to a new apartment soon and gonna set up new av system, i need a bit of help from you because i know basics but don't have experience in devices and tech that's been on the market in last few years, so sry in advance if it's gonna be longish post
I'm pretty sure tv is gonna be LG 55C8PLA and nvidia shield for playing, will have some small NAS in the room next door, cables are already in place.
I have an old Yamaha AX-500 and B&W DM309, they actually sound pretty decent, i wanted to replace both (new B&W 606 looks great) but decided to focus my budget on reciever/amp for now and see how my old speakers will pair with that, the budget is around $1000 (and i'm in EU)
So, my needs for reciever/amp: i'm not an audiophile but it has to have a good stereo playback, decent music quality is equally important as video.
Video is gonna be from youtube streams to 4K bluray movies, and since i wanted all that connectivity and build in tech, i'm looking at Denon AVRX3500H, seems like a good allround device, it's future proof when i decide to expand from 2.1 >..
Whats i'm mostly concerned with is (and that's my guess) that new receivers are not so focused on quality stereo anymore, and if you want that you must buy dedicated that cost a lot more, and in the process lose bells & whistles that AVRX3500H have? If Denon ends up not been so good for music maybe add some dedicated DAC in between?
And also, some small bits that kinda go unnoticed, reading avsforums i realized i'm gonna need dedicated BT device if i want to use my Jays u-JAYS Wireless headphones with denon, i'm sure i'm gonna discover more things like that but the sooner the better.
Gonna try to connect all that with my logitech harmoby hub remote.
I'm sure i forgot to provide some additional info but any help, advice on my setup is appreciated!
can't post links yet but short specs for B&W DM309: Nominal impedance 8 Ohm, Amplifier Requirements 25 - 120 W
