Is there such a thing as a 'smaller' stereo receiver? I'm familiar with your regular receiver; but they all seem to be, if not in height, the same depth and width. does anyone make a receiver that's narrower and isn't part of a 'mini' or 'midi' or whatever they call it system? you know, like a regular Yamaha receiver, but narrower, for instance.

I tried a quick question on this on the Electronics forum, but they seem to be arguing about nationalities or something.

How narrow do you want it? Is it just for stereo sound or you looking for a surround-sound receiver. Most of them are gonna be about the same width, it's kinda standard so they can fit the "standard" racks.

no....looking for just a regular stereo receiver, not surround sound, talk to martians, run your own home, has a cd, dvd, mp3, and cat washer all included. just a plain old stereo reciever (you know, receiver, tuner knob, amplifier built in, with outputs on the back)....a stereo receiver....

I'd like.....8 inches wide, maybe up to 12. most are 16-18 inches wide....

Could you stand it on it's side? No really, I haven't seen any like that. Why do you need one this narrow?

sure; the shelf. I'd like one thats not full-size....but just a receiver; not all the dork junk that comes with those little mini-units or whatever they're called....

Like Mizzou said, they're a pretty standard size. You can find a DVD or VCR player in smaller widths but not a receiver to my knowledge.

*sigh*

that's what I was afraid of.

thanks for checking, though.

Have you searched Crutchfield? They carry everything!

I was looking for something small a few months back. I ended up buying a smallish system ($50) from Target that looks like a 7 inch cube plus speakers. It has radio and Cd player. I'm not an audiophile. I just want music to listen to while I'm cleaning the house and don't want it to take up valuable space or cost a fortune. Probably still not what you're looking for, but I think I understand your motivations.
