Which Hi-Fi system to buy? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
here is a few pics of some of the least expensive gear I have managed to acquire that sounds very good.


here for example is a $30~ stack (reciever Nikko NR-750 $10 Sony DVP-S360 $7 and a pioneer CT-F500



and $5 teac bookshelf speakers


(also pictured one of the $10 for the pair optimus X44-AV speakers (nice metal housed little bookshelf speakers not sure if they sold these realistic minimus/ optimus type speakers in the UK but they make nice bedroom / pc speakers I have a few sets of these type of speakers)


and my $20 B&W V202

can you link me to this or did you buy it at a garage sale? biggrin.gif

no garage sale stuff there... mainly because I don't get up early enough for garage sales... and the few times I have managed to get up early enough ..it was a total waste of time

these things came from an estate sale store and a couple different thrift stores ...so yeah no links just persistence / luck really

I have bought a couple things i really wanted off ebay... costs more... and honestly my luck has been mixed w/ getting stuff that works or not...( pro tip untested = broken | also worked last time plugged in before storing for x years = BROKEN smile.gif )

Also I'm getting a Surround Sound system for my birthday, and I'd like to hook it up to the Hi-Fi.

Does this mean the 5 speakers and subwoofer replace the original Hi-FI speakers?


What would be the best way of playing songs from my Nexus 4 through the surround sound?

It doesn't work that way. If you want to replace the speakers it comes with and get full surround from it, then these mini systems will not work: you'll need to look at surround receivers or a pre/pro and amp.

Also, generally, audio sounds best when played back through stereo that is properly setup, not using the emulated surround processing. Surround is used for movies and the occasional rare 5.1ch audio recordings. If your stereo speakers/processor are properly setup and any required room conditioning done, two speakers will give you surround sound from your listening position (meaning you won't hear anything coming directly from the speaker: it's called a sound stage).
