I'm putting together a "digital music" PC to use as a music server. This PC won't be used for playing DVDs or processing any video - nothing like that. All it's for is to play digitized music over my JBL S38s (I really like saying that). I have been looking and looking and looking for an amp to power my speakers, but everything I'm finding of any quality is pretty expensive. About the same price or more than a good entry level receiver. So then I'm thinking why bother with an amp? Why not just get a receiver. I could get an HK AVR-230 for roughly the same price as two Outlaw mono blocks. I feel like I'm missing something, but it seems terribly obvious to me: I should get a receiver and forget about an amp. Am I right? Crazy? Help me out. Thanks.
