Hi guys! First off, I've got a modern 55" TV, but naturally the onboard sound isn't at all satisfying. I'm on a budget of around $800, so I realise this puts me at the bottom end. I'd still rather go for a conservative real-setup than a soundbar. This will be my first build, so assume I'm a complete beginner. Not sure it's of any use, but I inherited a Sony STR-k990 receiver from a friend, whilst I know it's old, I figure it might give me more cash to put towards to the other components. Is it even worth trying to re-use this? Or shall I just recycle it. I'm unclear if it's got the beef to power modern speakers anymore (?). I was thinking initially of just a 2.0 or 2.1 setup, then adding a subwoofer and center later once my finances allow, so that I can keep the components more respectable. Then further increasing to a 5.1 later on. Not adverse to buying 2nd hand or trawling Craigslist for bargains either. Just looking for some thoughts or recommendations from you more seasoned listeners. Thanks! Lee.
