hifi q (onkyo)
I want a two speaker stereo set up. I know you will tell me to get a stereo amp but hear me out.
I want to connect a 3D TV. I know you can connect this to a stereo amp (i was looking at Yamaha AS500). the thing is I want to connect using hdmi (i just 'geek's its better/easier). the Yamaha formats have hdmi. Therefore I'm looking at an AV Receiver, an Onkyo TXNR515 and use it in stereo mode.
Later I might want to add a centre speaker for movies. Does this Onkyo support that (the sales guy says no, only 2 or 5 speakers)?
The Onkyo is 130W per channel. if I have two speakers connected, does that mean 130W goes to each of the front speakers?
Suppose I had all 7 speakers injected including 2 subs, does that mean 130W RMS go into each channel.at th same time, so.it can potentially give 130W x 7 = 910W RMS? That sounds ridiculous to me, I think there is no way it can make that kinda power.
Suppose I bought that Yamaha stereo amp instead. How would I connect 3D TV, playstation, ipod?
