This is my first go at speakers. I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing.
I recently received a pair of Klipsch KSB 3.1 speakers from a friend for $30. (looking online, they go on ebay for over $150... I'd say my friend needs to take better care of her things. LOL).

Anyways, I want a receiver that'll interface with my HDTV and my laptop. I'm not sure what the best route I need to take here. Budget under $350 or so. I DO have a Fiio E17 and a Objective O2/ODAC combo (all in one) so I don't have a "standalone" DAC but I'm sure there's a way to just send the audio out and bypass the amp from either of these? If they are needed. I was also thinking maybe the audio can just be sent from my laptop's HDMI port. Any advice, I'd appreciate
