Really? The salesman told me I could just run the speakers to the hi-level out?!

Oh, that's a shame. I need to do more homework it would seem.

Well, you can get a used receiver for pretty cheap in my experience, or you could get something like the t-amp on parts express.

I did find a Sony 2 channel for $155, and a 5.1 for $199...there goes my budget.

I do have an Onkyo SR-605 that's part of my HDTV/Surround set up...I wonder if I can just run an optic out from my soundcard to my receiver then 2 rca's from the receiver to the sub, and then connect the superzeros to the high level out on the sub....at the cost of cable clutter. It'd probably just be easier to have a standalone receiver/amp for my pc.

To use the speaker level outputs on the sub, you need to be using the speaker level ins as well, otherwise the speakers won't get any power.

I got a used pioneer receiver some time ago for much less than those prices, so I'd just keep looking if I were you

Gah, I'm confusing myself, I should know better than that. lol
I will keep looking, thanks. Those were brand new prices from 6ave elec.
I'm sure I can find something on craigs for less.

Well, I found a Marantz SR4600 that I'm going to try and negotiate to $200.
Otherwise, there is an Onkyo HT-R320 for sale for $100 obo.

I may or may not go 5.1, it's not imperative, so the Onkyo may be my best bet.
post #17 of 21
I definitely wouldn't go for that onkyo for that price, that's ridiculous. It's old and very entry level (you could get a refurbed HT-R320 for $100 back in 2005!). The marantz is also relatively old, but provided you don't have any need for hdmi or other things like DTS-HD or Dolby TrueHD it'll be more than fine for a 2.1 music system. I dunno about the price though (based on age and other more modern options).

Edit: I think I found the perfect receiver...waiting to hear from the seller.
(wish they had a phone number in it)

Onkyo TX SR603X for $100 obo. Offered $90. It hasn't been used in almost a year, or so I'm told. Looked really clean from the pics.

Edit: $95 was agreed. I have 5 days to try it out.

The SR4600 came out at the end of 2005 or so.

That onkyo is also a 2005 receiver (what's with you and 2005? lol) but if it works out for you that's great.

lmao...everything I'm finding is priced ridiculously high.
(my same SR605 selling for $250? no thanks...and a 4 year old Denon for $175) Guess '05 was a good year to me?

As long as it works...and with this one, I can always expand to 5.1
