Alright so I'm working on putting together my first attempt at a "hi-fi" system and I've run into a snag; the amp I want to use for my system (Marantz PM5004) does not have a sub out line. I want to put Audioengine P4's with this amp and I fear that they might be lacking in the low end, so I planned to add an Audioengine S8 sub to help balance out my system.
SO: Is there a way I can get enough low end sound by using the Marantz, or should I switch to something that DOES have a dedicated sub output like the Harman Kardon 3490?
Do I even need a sub, or would that be over doing it? I'm obviously a little new to the hi-fi life (I'm upgrading from this), so I would appreciate any help I can get! (Also, if you have any better suggestions for speakers or an amp within the same price range, I would be glad to hear them.)
Thanks for your time!
