This is my first post as well as my entry into the audiophile scene regarding a surround sound system setup so please
bare with me as I try to understand the best way to accomplish what I want to do.
Here is what I have
1) Kef T205 (arriving in two days)
2) Asus Xonar Essence STX
So essentially like many naive consumers I found out that Bose is in actuality not a premium brand by any means to put it
delicately. I chose the Kef T205 both for its slim profile and for it being available in white to match my walls and setup as well as
it getting great reviews everywhere I can find.
I am going for an all white setup, which is complete with the exception of the A/V Receiver.
The only one to my knowledge and research that I was able to find was the Harmon Kardon BDS-580.
However I do not know of the quality in reality or if the Kef T205 will be delimited by this receiver.
So here are my questions,
I currently have a Asus Xonar Essence STX sound card in my pc and was wondering if that can be used as an
A/V receiver or if I have to buy a dedicated box.
Does anyone know of any high quality A/V receivers that are pure white? This would be my preferred route.
Lastly, if the above two do not work can anyone make suggestions for what are the best A/V Receivers?
