Good to hear it's on your radar. I have been blown away with the imaging of a decent 2 channel setup, and if you're not running a centre, there's a strong argument for not overspending on surround sound electronics and instead spending on higher quality 2 channel analogue gear. (Which is probably equally an argument for how important the centre channel is...)
I guess it comes down to how important your surrounds are. Even the sub can be integrated in a 2 channel pure analogue setup.
Certainly good points there. I suppose that the problem for me is that while I enjoy surround sound, my surrounds are placed in a far-from-ideal position and to be honest, I don't think that I watch enough movies to really require full surround sound. I do love the lossless audio from DTS and Dolby.
Can you please let me know how I can integrate a sub-woofer into a 2-channel analogue set-up?
For example, the PM-KI Pearl integrated amplifier does not have a sub-woofer out-put.
I don't require my sub-woofer for 2-channel Music listening so I can connect my SA-KI Pearl SACD/CD Player into the CD in-put of the PM-KI Pearl.
However, for Blu-ray Disc audio play-back, if I were to run 2 channels out of the 7.1 analogue out-puts on the back of my Sony BDP-S5000ES, that won't be an issue but I would certainly want to integrate my sub-woofer into the equation. Obviously, there is a sub-woofer out-put on the rear of the Sony but how do I connect it up to the PM-KI Pearl when there is no sub-woofer in-put on the rear of the PM-KI Pearl?
Stupid question but I obviously cannot connect my Sony BDP-S5000ES' sub-woofer out-put directly into my sub-woofer, can I?
Hope that I am making sense here.
