Question about Pioneer VSX-9110TXV-K
You might be able to find a really good deal on a signal amplifier through a big corporate music store. They tend to have a lot of selection and great information about the power needs of your system and all that. If you have a lot of cable to go through to get to your speakers (since they are outside) you will probably be able to find an amp that will last longer and transfer a better signal at someplace like Musician's Workshop" or "Guitar Studio" or another major outlet ... plus they have killer sales several times per year. Just make sure you let them know that you are looking for a "RACK MOUNTABLE SIGNAL AMPLIFIER" not just an amp, since if you just ask for an amp they will take you over to the amp/speaker combinations that people hook into an electric guitar.
If you are looking to keep your system entirely in the "home electronics" market, you could try Best Buy. The reason I am not giving any specific suggestions about what type of amp to buy is that your needs (distance of speakers from source, price, other features, etc.) for your specific setup are the main factor in the purchase. Depending on what secondary features you are looking for (Equalizer, subwoofer pre-outs, multiple room usability, future upgrade-ability etc.) and your price range, there is a WIDE array of options available. I recommend that you take some measurements to a few stores and ask specific questions:
1. Measure: Distance to indoor speakers, distance to outdoor speakers, preferable size of component (so you can fit it with the rest of your system) 2. Questions: Is the distance between the stereo base and components enough to merit a line amplifier between the stereo and the outdoor speakers? If you were to add the line amp, how much would it cost, and what is the risk to the component if you do not have one? Will the cooling requirements of the amp make it difficult to put it with the rest of your equipment? Are there any warranties on the component? Should you get an amplifier that will cover all of the speakers, so you can avoid burning out your receiver if you want all of the speakers running at once? Which brand that has all of the options you are looking for is the most reliable (according to customer feedback).?
Phillips, Sony and Magnavox all make relatively inexpensive receivers that can be found at any electronics store ... but their durability over time is proportionate to their price. Fender, Marshall and Peavy all make really good and durable signal amplifiers for musicians, but they might not be able to handle the distances between the stereo components and the outdoor speakers .. but if they can cover the distance, they will last a LOT longer than the home electronics at a comparable price since they are designed to be used as part of a career, rather than as part of your leisure time.
