I was going to make the same post. Don't even bother with HDMI "switching" receivers. If all you think you'll ever need is a optical audio input, find a high-end model from 5 years ago, and get yourself a Monoprice HDMI switch. But really, you can't say you'll only ever need lossy DD and DTS.

EBAY. I'm ordering my recommended system today.

Now, when I say 2.1 I don't mean a 2.1 as opposed to 5.1, 6.1 or 7.1 home theater system. I mean 2 channel stereo with a subwoofer.

Cool 2x6. I have been really happy with my MK III though I have not used it as a preamp. It has been very reliable. I have used the MK III for late night listening with headphones the past year, used almost everyday on average 2+ hours a night. Still on the original tubes! Very nice product and has excellent build quality.

I would recommend purchasing the MK III from the authorized dealer DavidZheZhe on ebay.

Good luck with your purchases.

I just exchanged emails with David. He seems very nice. I wonder if I'll need an external DAC to interface the Little Dot with the Play Station 1 as a CDP.

Here is the system I'm putting together. Opinions welcome!

Speakers - Axiom M3Tis.


Velodyne VX-11 subwoofer


Little Dot MKIII preamp


Muse 2024 T-Amp


Sony XDR-F1HD FM TUNER


Sony Play Station 1 as CDP

Did the PS1 even have a digital audio out which could be used with a DAC?

I thought the whole point of using an original PlayStation as a player was to take advantage of its DAC.
