My Macintosh with 200 watts per channel RMS is no dinosaur - OK, it has
some age, but it's great; far better than I can hear with two hearing aids.

Yes, I was going to ask if I could run one set of speakers from one
receiver and the other from another one.  But how do I connect the two
receivers to my CD player?  No - I have one receiver, builtin preamp and
amp, and one system with separate preamp and amp (the Mac).

The Mac has to run the Bose speakers, (circa 1970, model I) which just eats
watts.  The others can be run with the receiver. The problem is that I have
to separate the Bose so far apart that even they cannot fill the middle, so
I have four little guys and a separate woofer (builtin amp for that one).
 Thanks for all the help.   bill w
