I just moved to a new apt in NYC with a living room (22x13ft) and a 2nd br/den (13x12ft) where I intend to play music. The living room has our main television, which I intend to hook up to my Onkyo amp, into which I will connect my DVD player, BoxeeBox, Cable Box, Computer, etc. Then the Onkyo will be hooked up to front right and left, back right and left, and center single Orb speakers and the Orb subwoofer in the living room.
In addition, I have 2 Orb speakers in the den that will be hooked into the Onkyo on the 2nd channel so when playing music it can be to both rooms. The rear 2 speakers in the living room and the 2 speakers in the den are all wired through the plaster walls so no re-wiring is possible on those.
Now I am building the ST-120 and about to purchase a new turntable, likely either Rega RP1 or Pro-Ject Debut Carbon (suggestions?), and need to figure out how I am going to integrate this into the setup. Was thinking of hooking the front R and front L as well as rear R and rear L speakers into some sort of amp switch which I could switch between the Onkyo and Dynaco when playing music (Dynaco) and TV (Onkyo), however then I would lose 5.1 surround with the Onkyo.
Any suggestions for the hookup would be truly appreciated!
