Home is where my full kit resides, but a few years back I bought a small "seasonal" cabin. I have ISP/DSL access so can stream audio and video. I wanted to keep things simple, so I started out with a Boom and a small TV. I still enjoy the boom and his sound to this day. I wanted to improve the video sound, so I bought a cheap Yamaha soundbar and decided to also bring an extra Touch from home to run through the soundbar. A slight improvement over the boom (which actually says a lot for the boom).

But, it's really not cutting it, not bad, but I miss the sound from my gear at home.

I made a change to one of my systems at home that freed up a nice pair of Klipsch KG 1.5 bookshelf speakers (the old ones, not the gold cone ones). I plan on bringing them to the cabin, but, how to drive them? This is where my SB friends come in, your advice.

I have a couple of old Rotel integrated amps (the late 70's) at home but they are too big and bulky. I have an Arcam A65 amp in one of my systems at home, which would be perfect, but I don't want to disassemble that system.

So I am looking for some suggestions, especially something I might find used, or relatively inexpensive, do drive the bookshelf. The speakers are very efficient, and I don't plan on playing anything loud, so low powered but clean, small footprint, would be ideal.

One last thing. I would really like if the amp could be controlled by a remote to integrate it into the harmony I have. Also, if it had a digital input and a nice DAC, then that would be ideal for the touch, otherwise, I would use analog.

Thanks for any suggestions...

Hi Nawelio, help me determine if you're a genuine user or a spam poster. In your profile here you say you're from Los Angeles, whereas in the post in the SB forum you say you're from Western New York. Are you really the same person and if so, what additional help are you looking for, over and above the help that you've already received over there?
