Currently I am running a 2.1 system with a sprout100 as my integrated amp. My wife loves using our Google home to play music, so I wanted a way to connect the google assistant to my stereo system. We mainly listen to spotify. I was considering something like the Bluesound Node 2i.
I am considering switching my sprout100 for something else like an integrated network amplifier. I enjoy the sound of the sprout100 but my wife misses our past denon avr’s features. So I am trying to find a middle ground or a way to make my system work. My budget is under $1000. Let me know if anyone has any ideas.
