Dear all, I am planning a system and I need your advice. For input I use: PS3 (currently via SCART, but I can change to optics) + MacMini (currently I use minijack, but I can switch to digital audio-line; it has PLEX towards which I stream via ApplePlay from iphones, ipads, macs) + minijack (from mac pro; when I watch movies and connect to projector). Currently I manually switch minijack to get sound from old CreativeSpeaker system. The problem is that PS3 does not allow me for volume control. I would like to change this picture by buying something (amp?) to which I can connect all these guys and either output the sound through my old CreativeSpeaker system as I do (but with volume control). I would like also to have an option to connect my headphones (32 Ohms). I have no problems with buying new speakers if necessary/recommended. I leave in big openspace (70 sq. meters). I do not listen loud. Requirements. New box needs to be esthetic (no plastic, ascetic). Things which I like visually are e.g. Bose SoundTouch SA-4, Yamaha A-S701. Total budget <1000$. Speakers need to be rather small. All things need to be close to each other - all my media tools are in one place, so my room is empty. Many thanks for any suggestions. I really do not know what to buy. I lack the expertise so I will appreciate yours a lot! Thank you!
