I’ve been thinking about purchasing a new A/V receiver. It simply comes down to the fact that, now that I have a TV with S-Video and high-quality audio inputs, I should have an A/V receiver that handles those. My lovely little Aiwa has been a great little trucker for the last three years, but it’s just not up to my … well, not needs, but desires.
So, I’ve found what I want to get: a Sony STR-DE985. Sweetness, in a box. And hey, the old Aiwa doesn’t have to be chucked … the “second room” function could be used with that as a receiver. And yes, I actually have a way to use it. 🙂
Of course, this would still be pushing sound out through my bargain-basement KLH speakers, but one thing at a time. I’ve seen these on eBay for around $400, and found one place online selling them for about $350. Sometime soonish.
