Hi all, this is about playing stereo mp3 from a pc. Posted this in Rec/Seps/Amps but didn't get all I hoped for... this might be the proper place. I've just gotta replace the old Kenwood VR-357 receiver I bought refurb'd 8ish years ago. My Question: Would an integrated amp like a Marantz PM7200 or Rotel 1062 taking analog from my SoundBlaster Live still outperform say, a Marantz 5600 using its own DACs? Presently I'm in a studio house. I thought to get an integrated amp/stereo receiver (i do listen to FM) with A/B, for PC-mp3 (97%) & TV-DVD (3%, and 2ch for now). But I've not found an option that takes Coax/Optical digital in. So I'm thinking a Marantz 5600 might make more sense, and be future-proof. I'd like to cap this at $600, and spending less is always nice A pair of JBL S38's are used for music flanking the PC (fed digi-coax). I also have a mind to put a pair of JBL Arc-30's (older 6.5" bookshelf) flanking my TV since DVD bass tends to bottom out the built-ins. $100 Dvd player is also digi-coax. Sub is 12" 150W Cerwin Vega. I have a 2nd pair of S38's and an S-Center I plan to keep for if I move somewhere with a full living room. I previously got a nice Pioneer Elite receiver 2 yrs ago in college but returned it shortly after because my car got stolen (doh). But I loved the fuller more powerful sound, and I don't want to listen to this damn overrated mass market piece anymore. Thanks!
