Will be moving my 2 channel and HT from the living room downstairs into a theater setting, hopefully by summers end. I would like a simple system in the living room, for example, my Silverline Audio sonatina II's driven by a 2 channel receiver. $2000-2500 (used on A'gon) budget. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance,
Perhaps an Anthem TLP1 would fit your needs. It's a two channel pre with good remote, tuner, decent sound, and inexpensive. Most reviews indicate that it performs well ahead of it's cost. Pair this with an amp of your choice and you may find what you need for your living room.
