My father's birthday is coming up and I'm looking to build him a little bookshelf system similiar to the JVC executive systems that they sell at Best Buy and Circuit City. I was thinking of pairing some kind of receiver with m2's and a passive sub I have laying around.
My question is, does anyone know of a compact receiver similiar to what can be found in the desktop systems, but as a seperate and hopefully with better sound quality? ...idealy with a built-in cd player (or matching cd player seperate). It is just for his home office, so it doesn't have to be overly loud. I'm not sure what I'm looking for exists, but I was hoping someone might be able to shed some light on my problem. Thanks for any help guys.
The intended result is something like:
-- my setup --
Axiom: m80ti(2), vp150, vp100, qs4(2), hsu vtf-2
Harman Kardon: avr-630, dvd22
