Hello I am a beginner to the audio world and need help understanding how basic things work. It may seem like some dumb questions but am looking for good info to get me fired up.
I am in the market for a Magnepan 1.6, Parasound Halo A21 (can the A52 be a suitable substitute?) and am looking for suggestions for an A/V reciever to complement the "maggie." I am simply not understanding how these three components hookup in order for me to properly utilize the maggies (aside from a CD player of course!) CD player aside, do the speakers connect directly to the amp? Or does the reciever connect to the amp or vice-versa? I'm just not seeing the big picture here. Can someone break it down for me, or illustrate an example of how he/she would setup these components? Thank you very much!
