I recently got a marantz av surround receiver sr5001 (for free).
I have no previous experience in audio but seeing the back of the receiver made me curious what the options are. What I can realize with this thing
So I did some research here and there but I find it extremely difficult to really know what I can do and how the quality will be / is from the receiver.
What I want:
A home theater (got an optoma optoma hd142x beamer)
and want to upgrade the sound quality but want to use it also for listening to music.
This will go from techno, dnb , rock …
I have some two cheap bookshelf speakers from when I was young. but they can’t really bring out those low frequencies.
Should I go for a 2.1? or would a 5.1 fullfill my goal more if I stay in the same price range.(600 dollars)
or start with a 2.1 and improve it later on to a 5.1?
should I begin with just a subwoofer and then switch out those bookshelf speakers later on?
Thanks in advance!
