Glad to get in on this. I need a pair of speakers for my home office, and these should do me fine. I am on the lookout for a 2.1 amplifier. I see that Dayton Audio makes one with Bluetooth--the DTA-2.1BT 100W Class D. Does anyone know of others that would be a good match for the Pioneers and a sub? Budget for amp limited to $150.
I second this question. Can we get some suggestions for fairly low cost 2.1 amps to drive these and a sub from a PC? I would prefer something with an optical in I think.
Yes, I have been looking at that one. So a powered sub would connect to "B" speakers' output, if one wanted a sub at all? Is that where you're getting the 2.1 instead of 2.0 as it's described in the link? Sorry, newbie here.
& @drbroad Agreed, I had the same question on this Yamaha when I looked at it. Seems there are mixed reports as to the effectiveness of this configuration (running the sub off the 'B' speaker output). I haven't read Mr. Guttenberg's review on this yet... I'll have to give that a read and see if he mentions anything about subwoofer connectivity.
No, he doesn't, but then he's pretty anti-subwoofer for music listening. I don't know if I would use one anyway.
Thanks for your recommendations. I'll take a look.
FWIW im not a huge bass head, and I think a lot of home Subwoofer setups are heavy handed (crossover too high, too loud) but I have an 8 inch sub in one room and I highly recommend it - It does help to just fill out the sound when you use it sparingly. All depends on your setup, of course.
