Looking for a decent <$200 receiver
on Apr 9, 2010 at 3:49:55 pm

I just bought a pair of KRK RP8G2 Active Studio Monitors. I have a really old receiver that I want to upgrade to something decent, less than $200 if possible. Right now the set up will be mainly be used for music listening and video editing from my macbook, but eventually I might want to hook up a monitor, blu-ray player, etc. Any suggestions?

Power Rating (HF/LF): 20w/70w
signal to noise (hf/lf): 86db/97db
THD (hf/lf): .09%/.01%
Input: XLR (3-pin), RCA & 1/4" TRS - 10k Ohm, Balanced / Unbalanced
Amplification: HF: 20 Watts/LF: 70 Watts
Freq Response: 44Hz - 20kHz (+/- 1.5 db)
crossover freq: 2.4kHz
subsonic filter: 35Hz
Video Shielding: Yes

Not quite sure what you mean by the term. The KRKs don't need an amp (or receiver). They do need a mixer or preamp to feed them the correct levels. A mixer would provide the best options for other gear such as Blu-Ray and DVD inputs

Not much in the professional realm for under $200 though. This might be your best bet:

Mac Pro 2x2.8 Quadcore - 10.6.2 - QT 7.6.3 - 22 GB RAM - nvidia8800GT - SATA internal & external storage - Blackmagic Multibridge Pro - Open GL 1.5.10 - Wacom Intous2 tablet - AJA io
SONY XDCAM EX3 - Letus Elite
