How to add multi-channel music as a (psychedelic) extra dimension/possibility????
Posted by: JimDog on 11 January 2019
Ok - so this question is admittedly pretty nuts, but:
I have 272, serviced 150x and Arivas - this system sounds great for 2 channel music, and good for TV too.
I will upgrade to 250DR and new speakers when the boat comes in - but for now I have a strange desire to add an extra dimension.
My nutty idea is to create a 5.1 system on a small budget:
buy 2 rear speakers and a centre channel speaker 2nd hand - say £300?
buy a 2nd hand sound processor or an old AV receiver type amp - this box would be used to upmix 2 channel sources to 5.1 signals - say £150?
then on the odd occasion when I fancy something different I can switch from 2 channel to 5 channel mode for a more enveloping but less purist soundscape
I know this anathema to most folks on this Forum, but for those open-minded enough to even discuss it:
any ideas on what kit would achieve this?
and how would I wire it up?
