Hey guys,

Thanks for the input and suggestions thus far.

Ya I guess saying low cost is really a relative thing so I should have put a dollar amount in there. I was thinking in the terms of not needing to spend thousands on high end stuff as I already have decent listing equipment. So the bottom line is I don't mind spending upwards of a couple hundred dollars or more if it gets me a decent product and to the digital xo features. As for mutiltasking the amp for background music, I imagine even 60W should be ok (never used an amp rated under 120W)

The other avenue I was considering was just getting some small 2 channel amps or a pair of small mono blocks dedicated to the task. I saw this tread where someone was using a 2 channel JBL amp. It looked slightly bigger than the hand. Maybe it is based on the LM3886 chip y8s mentioned. In any event what caught my attention was the small form factor and nice neet little package. Add more channels as you need them.

What I am gathering so far is that most folks just utilize a low cost 5.1 or 7.1 integrated amp with the option of direct RCA inputs to handle the digital filter features. Ok by me. I'll start looking at some lower end units like the Sherwood.

Really apreciating the feedback. It's good to be educated and hear options before laying out the cash for something that doesn't fit the bill or burns out in a year.

The more I learn the more I realize how much more I need to learn.
