Hi, I am new to the forum and I have no idea about AV equipments and I would like some advice/pointers to get me started. I've had a Kenwood KR-V8050 for quite a while, bought by my father I don't know when and handed to me. I don't know how to use it and never used it. In fact, I am not even quite clear what this thing is exactly for. The extent of my knowledge with respect to AV things stops at knowing that stereo means 2 channel and 5.1 is center + 4 speakers + sub-woofer. I don't watch TV, I don't watch movies at home and I don't really listen to music. I do play some video games on my PS3. Is there any use to this receiver for me? My wife wants me to set up some kind of audio system to listen to music at home. Should I get a $3 MP3 player from eBay and somehow hook it up to the receiver? Or should I just ditch this and buy one of those BOSE or whatever audio system that streams from your smartphone? Can I use the receiver for games somehow, mindful that the receiver is quite old (like, newest audio technologies supported?)? I am moving in the near future. If I can make use of this, I would, but if not, I'd like to reduce the the number of things I'd have to carry. If I don't need this too much, what would be a reasonable price I can get for the receiver that's working well and in a very good cosmetic condition, with the remote? Would anyone be interested in something like this? I also have some questions about speakers, which I think belong better on the speaker board, so if you will follow me there to help me out with those, you are very welcome to do that.
