Something ***LIKE*** a Carver Power AMP plus Pre AMP is the best but using Hardware like that without some top flight Source Material is a Joke!

    Source Material = High Grain Albums with a minimum priced Turn Table of $1000, Super Audio CD, 24bit 96KHz Stereo DVD Audio, or High Sample rate Live Music professionally recorded. NOTHING tickles me more than some guy or chick breaking out the 100,000 system to listen to a low budget CD-Audio Disc.
    My uncle likes listening to these through his $30000 vintage system.

    and one of my old Army Buds has them and a very sweet Nakamici deck! Unfortunately my Pioneer CTF-1050 is down.

    Stuff from Rotel are pretty good.... they sell AB / D class amps.
    If you don't have enough power and want a cheaper solution... you can buy a brand new yamaha receiver from most major stores for around 500$ cdn anyways and bi-amp it.

    Dude, read the first post, I'm on a very tight budget (college student). $500 is out of the question, I'm looking for $300 or less, preferably $200 or so. That's why I'm searching ebay so much, I'd much rather get something used with a few scratches that has better internals than some cheapo sony new.

    The "best" way to connect a pc to receiver is HDMI. Through HDMI on the avr, I am able to shunt video the tv and have a plethora of sound modes from the AVR to my 7 speakers.

    Thats the very best way to go, I hope your search for a decent budget sound is successful, some of the much older brand name amps are unbeatable for 2 channel heaven


    Oh and the BEST way to connect a PC to an older amp is analogue or coax/optical if the bit rate is not more than ~ 1500
    lots and lots of cores and lots and lots of tuners,HTPC's boards,cases,HDD's,vga's,DDR1&2&3 etc etc all powered by Corsair PSU's

    But Ole School amps don't support Digital Input. Many Newer Receivers don't have the Brute force and some times have DACs worst than those found on the sound cards. That means most of the time, the ole school amp being feed directly from the sound card will get the best pure sound or the widest frequency.

    Speakers. Also ANY speaker can be pushed by those old Integrated AMPs-Pre AMP, Receivers and Power AMPs. Simply put, they have to be heard to be believed. I've heard old school setups costing less than 1K put 6K new school ones to shame!!!
