I have several rooms wired for mono speakers. These will be used for background music. I am looking for a stereo reveiver that can be run in mono mode or perhaps a device that will allow me to brigde stereo speaker outputs into mono. I will need about 200 watts total power. Space is a consideration. I would like to go with a receiver rather than separate tuner and amp. Cost is another consideration. I would like to spend about $300. All suggestions are welcome. Thanks
If you really want to have speakers in more than two rooms, you are going to need to spend a little more than $300. Bridging the amp has nothing to do with what you are trying to accoplish. Most home audio amps cannot be bridged anyway. here is the link to a product that does what you need.
