Suggestion for a receiver/tape deck/speakers
« on: June 18, 2015, 03:11:38 AM »
Hi all.
I'm Looking for a good receiver that I can plug my turntable and have airplay functionality.

I have a Audio-Technica LP-120 USB Turntable.

Looking for a receiver that I can use airplay (or bluetooth) from any Apple device. Also thinking to add a tape deck, dvd player, tv,...
Thinking around $200-$300. But open for suggestions.

Also looking for any suggestion for some speakers. Thinking about A5+ AudioEngine.

AND if you have any suggestion for a tape deck I'd appreciate too.

Any help?

Thanks

I can't help you w/ a Receiver or Speakers...

But for a Tape Deck, find a Nakamichi...  I think they are the only ones around that still have repair service available...

I will return your DATs/Tapes/MDs.  I'll also provide Master FLAC files via DropBox.  PM me for details.

Here is what I would recommend. May extend a smidge outside of your price range, but it should be OK.

NAD D3020 integrated amplifier (includes aptX Bluetooth and D/A converter) - ~$450
ELAC speakers: ~$280 / pair

I like a used Sony ES series for the tape deck. For the DVD player, I would choose one with a digital out for audio and try to run that through the D/A converter on the NAD unit. It should sound great.

I have a brand new Pioneer Elite VSX-44 I'm selling cheap since I ordered an Arcam AVR400.  I've had it a month and it's a lot of value for the money.

I'd sell it for $200 shipped.  retail is $500.

Sabre DAC and all the modern features including airplay.  I was thinking about listing it here.

I'm considering buying a Pioneer Elite, but the manual says "Uncompressed FLACs not supported".  Does that mean my etree downloads on my external NAS may not play thru this receiver?  I bought a Sony that does play these, but it won't support my Mac-Mini itunes library unless i just play it from the headphone out of the mac mini into receiver via RCA.
