Compact receiver for bedroom


Looking for a compact receiver with two sets of speaker outputs for the bedroom in our new house. The previous owners had in-wall speakers -- Brand X -- in the bedroom and the master bath. The wires are in place; all we need is a small receiver (space there is limited). As this will mostly be for listening to the news in the morning or the ball game at night, audiophile quality is not our goal here. Having something that fits on the bureau alongside the other stuff, however, and being able to switch between two pairs of loudspeakers, though, does matter.
New or used. Not a million dollars.
Thanks.

These might fit the bill: NAKAMICHI R-1, Marantz 2010 or 2015, some early Sansui where smaller, Denon, Yamaha & Teac made compact systems with smaller width receivers.
Linn Classik.


Just go to wallyworld,kmart,bestbuy,etc. and grab an inexpensive minisystem.I'm sure you can find one that will suit your needs.
What qualifies "compact"? Some NAD receivers may fit your needs.
Got a great Nakamichi TA3A AM/FM Receiver with remote. Weighs 27 pounds, 17 inces wide. 4 inches in height and 15 inches in depth. Could be what your looking for is not to large for your space.
April Music has an all in one with a lamp even), as does Music Hall the Trio. I owned a fabulous clock radio with built in CD player by Teac I think they are still made. If you want higher end you might want to consider finding a Parasouund Z series stack of separates or even the X series from Musical Fidelidity.
I have a hard to find Marantz ARCH 2.0 desktop stereo for sale if you are interested.

The gent asked about driving two sets of speakers... Linn Classik is the the right choice as it drives two sets of speakers easily, has a tuner, CDP, and finally it just sounds pretty damned good. I'll say it again, it has four speaker output jacks to drive two pairs of speakers and does it well.
If you can live with the power limitations, the Advent 300 Receiver is a great vintage choice. I owned one for years.

I had the same needs. I bought an Arcam Solo Mini, It sounds great, is very easy to use, has a wonderful CD player. One of my favorite features is the various alarm and clock functions. it wakes me up with my favorite FM/npr station.

I tried the Arcam in my main system just for fun to compare it's performance with the ultra expensive stuff. I was amazed at how well it performed as a preamp and as a CD player. Very nice small unit.

Good luck!
