Compact stereo with phono input and twin speaker outputs
I wonder if the esteemed members of this forum could help with a tricky problem.
I have an old JVC HiFi system (separate units) bought in 1983 which is no longer working properly.
The tuner still works (but has never been very good), as does the CD player, and the turntable.
The tape deck doesn't work properly, but all my tapes have been digitised to I don't care about that.
The amp only drives on channel (on both sets of speakers) - I guess a power amp stage has blown.
So, after nearly 30 years, must be time to buy a new system.
What I would like is a compact, all in one unit with amp, radio (FM + DAB) and CD. It needs to have a phono input suitable for the turntable (so will need the usual phono pre-amp), and it needs to be able to drive two sets of speakers.
I don't need speakers as my existing ones are fine.
But what I see is that most compact units can't drive two sets of speakers, and don't have phono inputs.
Are there any systems which meet my needs?
If there are not, the alternative is to buy a stereo receiver and keep the existing CD player. Again, what would be suitable?
Budget - this isn't my main HiFi system so I'm not going to spend too much. A few hundred pounds at most. Forget anything over £500.
Any suggestions most welcome.
