Hi Polk fans!
I'm sure there's no simple answer to this question, but any comments from you experienced folk would be really appreciated. I'm very much a nubee at this stuff.
I still have my original SDA 2a's that I bought way back in 1987. They've been in storage for the last 15 years since our last move and I've gotten away from my music (sometimes life just gets in the way, eh?). Anyway, I've recently decided to setup a modest home theater in the living room and was wondering about trying to incorporate the SDA 2a's into the system. My old NAD 7100 receiver gave up to ghost so I picked up a modest Denon 1713 AVR which has fairly sophisticated surround-sound processing, but seems weak in the power department. Call me old-fashioned, but I'm not used to the lack of tone controls on these new-fangled AV equipment!
To be honest, I'm not too impressed with the way the Denon is driving the speakers, though it could be partly due to the relatively poor quality of the source material.
Anyway, I'm not sure whether it makes sense to try make it work with the SDA 2A's by themselves, or whether they need to be supplmented in some way (soundbar etc) or just sell them and buy a more modern 3.1 system.
