Hi, folks.

Looking for some more advice (I've posted elsewhere) on setting up sound amplification around my TV. I have Onix xl-s and Michaura M55 speakers ready to try out, and am looking at the new Paradigm Atoms too.


I will have two inputs - the TV and DVD recorder. HDMI on both, but I'm dissapointed with the lip sync issues and am ready to jet to composit + toslink. Here are my choices, in decending order from $ (~160) to $$$ (~700):


1. Emotiva BPA-1 (one input, small unit)

2. Panasonic XR57 (digital amp, highly lauded, lots of use for digital)

3. Teac AG-H800 (used unit - Tripath amplification, 2 toslink inputs)

4. NAD 320BEE (I'd go all analogue from the TV & DVD player to the unit, NAD sound)

5. Onix SP-3 Tube amp (too heavy and expensive for me right now, but I'm drooling)


Could I run the DVD player to the TV, and then the TV to the Emotiva BPA-1 and amplify both signals?


Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks for your thoughts. The Onix SP-3 is indeed an integrated amp, and while the Emotiva BPA-1 does indeed only have one input, I wonder if I could string things together - DVD to TV, TV out to Amp. I don't think that will work, but I haven't tried it yet.

Ah. I was thinking of the Audio Research SP-3. Never mind.

The model numbers in audio are pretty insane - don't worry about it. Years ago, Andy Rooney took apart the meaning behind the Volvo 244 in a funny segment (2 stands for "200 series;" 4 stands for "4 cylinders;" and the last 4 stood for "4 door," as opposed to the 245 which was the wagon - and later plain old "240" for no good reason - I own 3 of them).


Anyway, any thoughts on the Panny, NAD, or Teac AG-H800 tripath?
