I'm trying to combine a 5.1 system for movies, and a 2 channel system for music. I'm
definitely more interested in the music side of the system. Should I get an AVR or am I correct in thinking that it would be better to do a preamp with HT bypass and multichannel amp. My budget is roughly $5K including speakers. The room dimensions are 16' W x 27' L with listening position at 14' or so. Any advice/direction would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

There's nothing wrong with using an AVR for 2-channel. I like the Anthem MRX line around the $1K mark as they include ARC which is great IMO, but Denon, Yamaha, Onkyo, Pioneer are all good choices. Emotiva and Sherbourn separates are worth a look too. I would put the majority of your budget towards speakers as they will be a bigger factor in sound and will determine what kind of power you actually need.
