I'm fed up with the piss poor sound my Panny plasma puts out and I'm ready do something about it. I've got a CSiA4 in the closet and want to find a solution to integrate it into the system. What I'm looking for is something that can take a digital signal via fiberoptics and power the center. It'd be nice if it had the ability to output both signals in mono, but not necessary. The kicker is I need it to be in a very small footprint, much smaller than your run of the mill receiver. The idea is that the TV will eventually go above the fireplace, so I need something that can sit next to the A4 on the mantle.
I'm not looking for audiophile grade sound, just a fuller range of sound. I'm also looking for the cheapest options available. TIA
