Surround Sound and High-Fidelity Speaker System Set-up. Is it possible? How?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So I've been going back and forth considering whether I want surround sound or a high-end speaker system, and I want to see if I can make it both possible. I enjoy movies and music quite a bit, so I want to be able to see how I can build both systems. I plan on buying the surround sound system first, and in a few months (after I finish fully setting up my place) look to get hi-fi speakers. As far as I can tell, here are my options:

 

Option 1 - Make them completely separate systems. Buy 2 receivers and let them run on their own.

 

Option 2 - Buy a multi-room receiver and power the hi-fi speakers as the "Zone 2" system. 

 

 

Option 1 is pretty straight forward. 

 

Option 2 complicates things. Will I be able to find a multi-room home theater receiver that will work well for a hi-fi system? Especially if the hi-fi speakers are on "Zone 2"? Lastly, any recommendations for receivers if Option 2 is plausible. The extra features like Wi-fi and ethernet straight to the receiver and 3D capability are cool, but I'm willing to let those go for audio quality.

I don't think you will find much help as this is a forum for Headphones, not speaker systems. 

 

Good luck though.

It would be helpful if you stated a budget.

 

I would say to get one really nice A/V receiver and use it to power your 5.1 surround sound and Zone two 2.0 speaker setup.

Why spend cash for a second receiver, when that cash can be spend on speakers.
