Sorry to bump an old thread, however I have recently purchased set of Bose 901 series VI speakers (and EQ) and I want to incorporate them into my current 5.1 home theatre set up (cue Bose hatred).
My current receiver is a Pioneer VSX-917V, and after a lot of internet research I think I will buy the Yamaha R-S700 to essentially run as the 'pre-amp' for the 901s...
The problem is I have limited knowledge on how to connect the set-up (ie. Pioneer (rears and centre) to power to Yamaha (fronts) to 901s and EQ), or even it that is possible, so I am hoping for a little guidance.
I'm happy to buy a new receiver to run everything, however I think with the EQ for the Bose a stand alone 2 channel amp with tape monitor (or some other way to connect the 901 EQ) is the way to go. Open to suggestions of any other gear that may help (within budget of around $600-$1000)?
Thanks in advance for your assistance,
