Hello all, I'm brand new here and spent about an hour or so looking around but am completely overwhelmed by the amount of information in these forums. I'm looking to move from my vintage system (Pioneer SX-950 receiver / Yamaha YP-D6 turntable / KLH Model Six speakers) to a modern network friendly system. Originally I saw the Yamaha R-N500 network receiver (R-N500 - Stereo Receivers - Hi-Fi Components - Audio & Visual - Products - Yamaha United States) which seemed like a good bridge between vintage and modern... it gave me the network capabilities I was looking for but was still a throw-back to the vintage systems in that I could still use my turntable if I chose to. After thinking about it for a while, I honestly haven't used my turntable in a couple of years and really don't see myself using it any longer. With that in mind, I thought I'd see what else is available which is what brought me here. I may still go with they R-N500, but there are a few things that I'd like, that the Yamaha doesn't offer... - Built in wireless network capabilities - Possibly smaller footprint - In a perfect world, I'd love to be able to incorporate a small satellite system that could play my digital music over the network that would serve as an alarm clock in my bedroom. (don't even know if this is possible) If anyone has any thoughts, feedback, comments, or suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Thanks.
