Receiver suggestions

Post by Flex » 28 Mar 2017, 2:05pm

Looking to buy a new stereo receiver. I'd like something that works well for the classics (CD player/turntable/etc.) but also has wi-fi/blootooth/streaming options. Maybe $500-ish price-point? I'd probably plug my TV into it and since my apartment is small, don't have the room/desire for a 5.1 surround system at this time, so don't really need a 5.1/7.1 receiver. Any recommendations around here? I'm almost ready to, ugh, check Steve Hoffman forums or something.

EDIT: clarification

You can add a Chromecast Audio for streaming features:

This is a great recommendation. Easy way to add streaming. Doing some research, it seems like maybe an integrated amplifier is a good way to go - don't really need the tuner so just getting a good stereo amp and then a chromecast audio would be stellar. Then I can spend a little more on the turntable, which is also badly in need of upgrading...

I like music.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

You've never given evidence of that here.

You have to mine the tungsten yourself.
