Good morning everyone and greetings from Italy !\r\n\r\nI need your advice guys ! :)\r\n\r\nI am currently using a beautiful studio monitor M-audio latest model (M3-8) three way 2.1 setting (everything is all active) hooked up to my PC through an audio interface from Roland (quad capture). I am using XLR cables.\r\n\r\nI previously used also a Bose 2.1 and logitech THX system connected with a mini jack to my computer soundcard but no matter what , it seems nothing can match a great STUDIO monitors set up. So i really enjoy the cleanlinesses of my speakers, really pure , I actually wish that i do not have to switch back to NON-studio speakers...ever..\r\n\r\nhowever ! I am now getting a SMART TV and probably a PS4 , therefore I would like to have EVERYTHING connected together and manage everything from my PC : for example stream a movie to my tv via wireless and still use the same speakers, as for mp3 , tv and so on...\r\nI know that in order to do so , I'll have to get an AV RECEIVER, but , while doing some researches , I found no real good information on how to connect my active studio monitors with xlr to the 7.1 AV RECEIVER !\r\nI would like to get one of those AV receiver with WIFI , bluetooth and 4k ready , hdmi 2.0 . I can spend 1000$ easily no problems.\r\n\r\nNote that I will have no problems in purchasing another 2 or 3 monitors in order to have all separate channels and complete the set up.. \r\nI am also aware that there are plenty of very high end speakers for livingroom that costs thousands of dollars which may sound better than my studio monitors , however I would like to know if there is any way to keep using studio monitors ... (may be buying passive studio monitors ???)\r\nI think ive seen an extremely expensive yamaha av receiver which has in the back my xlr connections but it costs 3000$ (it's quite a lot for the receiver alone!!) .. and im not even sure that will solve my problem... please can you advise me on what I should do ? what is the best solution if I have a good budget ?\r\nThe ideal , in my view would be to connect everything through HDMI , so i can manage all with the AV receiver... however how can i get an hdmi from my speakers or usb audio interface ?\r\nPlease advise me the most audiophile solution and as well an economical one, if there is one...\r\n\r\nthank you guys so much in advance ! I trust you are very professional as I ve read some of your posts and you SOUND great !!!
