I just registered, and am hoping I can get some good advice. My old 2 channel receiver died after years of limping along. I have little interest in surround sound. I have a pair of ESM-2 speakers, and want to put my TV audio as well as my CD player through my speakers. I gave up on vinyl long ago, as I couldn't tolerate tics. My budget for a new receiver is around $650. I saw a good review of the Outlaw RR2150, but wonder whether an old classic in excellent condition would be even better: maybe a Pioneer SX-1050 or Sansui 9090DB. My worry with classics is, I'm not a capable electronics tech!
On a pre 1975 receiver with only 1 AUX input, where would I plug in the TV & CD?
Any advice on my main dilemma of old vs. new, or other units to consider?
