Denon Dab 38 with BA A26 or Dab 39 with MA BX2s or zone 2 wiring Denon 3310
I started off looking at ipod dock, but now i'm looking at a micro hifi.. i have come across a second hand dab 38 with Boston Acoustics a26 or for more money i could go for the dab 39 with Dali Zensor 1 or even more money go for the Monitor Audios BX2's
Is there much of a difference between the 38 and the newer denon 39? i want to be able to run an ipod touch and iphone 4s, listen to radio and thats about it, i dont think the cd player will be used all that much.. i was thinking i could achieve somethign simillar by running the zone 2 setup from my denon 3310? i am only using 5.1 speakers with the 3310, so if i've read correctly i can pump audio to another zone using the unused connections on the receiver?
i could use an app on the phone to control the denon so it might be workable.. what would the sound be like though?
For convience im tempted to go for a micro hifi.. i just dont want to spend a lot so the secondhand option is appealing.. i'd also like smaller speakers than the bx2s but i've been told that ideally i'd need their size or it wouldnt really be worthwhile
The other reason for going the micro road, is that eventually i might remove my turntable frmo the av amp move it to the other room and be able to listen to records while others are using the tv etc..
Any advice appreciated
