Newbie Question About Adding More Speakers

Post by spintheblackcircle95 » 16 Dec 2017 12:40

I Currently have the following setup-

Receiver- https://www.insigniaproducts.com/pdp/NS-R2001/9693507

Speakers- https://www.amazon.com/Pioneer-SP-BS22- ... B008NCD2LG

Turntable- https://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-A ... B01HMW46US

My question is this- Would it be possible to add a set of these speakers to the existing setup-

https://www.amazon.com/Pioneer-SP-FS52- ... ng+speaker

Also, will it harm the receiver to do this and would it lessen the sound quality at all? Thanks.

Instead of 2nd set of speakers how about using a sub woofer with your system.

You do have A/B output for line use so the option to have another pair is possible.

Sound quality??? You want a stereo image instead of surround like sound unless you were going to put one set in another room and switch locations for your listing enjoyment.

If not I suggest a sub woofer to compliment your bookshelfs just my suggestion/preference.

Any other responders out there to Help/suggest?

Thanks. Good to know it is possible. Yes I definitely want stereo and not surround. Thanks for the sub woofer suggestion as well. I will keep that in mind too.

I have one set-up using 2 pairs of speakers, stacked on each side, tweeter-to-tweeter. Good stereo sound.
I used to use a second pair to draw the sound out into the room.
It is fun to experiment, and change things around, from time to time. You learn what you like.

Cheers,
Alec

Ok so new question. If I was to setup for surround sound by adding a subwoofer and a center speaker as well, would I have the capability to use the two tower speakers by themselves to play music from the turntable?

Since the receiver is described as primarily a 2-channel stereo, you should be able to use the two towers only.

Cheers,
Alec

New Question-

Would a receiver like this solve the issues? It is more powerful and would allow me to run a surround setup. I guess my only lingering question is would I be able to run all the speakers simultaneously for surround and only the floor speakers for stereo sound when playing music from the turntable? Thanks

Yes most defiently.

You could have multiple inputs including your turntable and run your towers as your 2 main speakers which is how it normally done anyway and then when playing your records just use these 2 towers and the sub.

I have an ARCAM AVR 600 and use the 2 larger speakers (Focal Electras 1027s)and the sub ( JL Audio f110) as my 2 channel play back and run the room equalizer program for this setup. I also have the option to use the other channels for surround dialog if I wanted to use them later on.

This receiver that your eyeing has the sub out and even a phono stage input so if you buy the said speakers you will be all set.

You still need a sub to get the most out of your system and the on board menu settings of the receiver will Help you tweek the sound for the different inputs.

I hope this helps.
Tom
