      I feel a bit overwhelmed with the receiver + amp options out there. There’s just too much choice and being a novice in the field, it’s hard to have a good overview of what works and doesn’t, etc.

      I am looking for an integrated amp, if that is the name for something that does not require a pre-amp, and has a DAC that would have the following features:
      -Optical in
      -Can drive 6-ish Ohm at somewhere between 70-100W, integrated 20Hz high-pass
      -Preferably also with USB in

      I was looking at the Marantz NR1511 and NR1711 which tick most of those boxes, and I guess it would be able to get around 60~70W for 6Ohm. But they are 5.1 and 7.1 amps, which is a bit overdrive for me. They offer DSP through this audyssey thing which allows for room correction etc and I think that is quite important.

      The Marantz NR1200, a stereo receiver, ticks most boxes in what I want in an amp in terms of power output and audio specs, but does not offer DSP, which I think would be a must for me. I do not understand their pricing as the 7.1 amp is the same price as the stereo one.

      But I was wondering if any of you had other suggestions. Those receivers+amp are also within my budget, which would be max 800€.

      Thanks in advance
