I have an idea for the BeoCreate, but would like a second opinion before I buy anything please.
I have an old Avant 28 RF CRT.
My plan is:
1 - Strip Tube and all internals out, leaving just the 4 speakers (2 tweeters, 2 woofers - no passive crossover as amp was active).
2 - Mount my 32inch LED Sony onto frame. Take variable optical out into Beocreate (I presume Beocreate has a fixed volume?).
3 - Attach 4 speakers in 2 x 2 way active configuration. (Does the DSP have a generic 2 way active setting to suit this?)
End result should be I can use TV remote control to control volume through Avant speakers, and retain the classic Avant design.
Anyone any thoughts?
Also thinking of adding an autodetect Optical switch so I can switch between the TV and my Squeezebox Touch, using the volume control on either and the switch autosensing the source.
