You selected speakers that are only rated @ 85db/6Ω so any AVR/amp is not going to be over kill.
And even in a small apartment I don't know if 50w will really drive them properly, so that rules out the Marantz.
Both the Denon and Yamaha are 90w. I would most certainly get a model with at least L/R pre outs so if you decide later to add a power amp, you can.
Or you could go with a stereo receiver like the HK 3390 (80w) or 3490 (120w). Although they do not have hdmi.
Custom, one of a kind pair, MJC212 mains, mod PT800 center, PT800 surrounds, SUB1500s. Parasound P7, Citation 19, Parasound HCA2205A, HK AVR3600, Marantz TT, Denon disc player, MacBook Pro w/ DragonFly usbDAC.
