I had been thinking of a Denon AVR-3500H or maybe the Integra DRQ 2.1 but I don't really know what I need.
What would you recommend?
I use a T758v3 with my KEF R500/R200c/R100/R50 speakers and it drives them all louder than I could possibly tolerate. I tried to send it into protection mode by running at the same level as my older Denon, to no avail. Thankfully.
Of course you can add an amplifier later if not satisfied.
