Apologies forgot to mention about the speakers.
I will be using Dynaudio Emit M10 Passive Bookshelf speakers.
I plan a 2.0 system. I do not plan to extend to 5.1 or 7.1 in the near future. Movies/games are a secondary concern, but would like to hook them up to the speakers anyhow when I am watching movies and PS4.
I am also considering the receiver option, but do not want to lose music quality from that. And since the main aim will be music, was focusing on Amps more. A receiver I had also considered was Yamaha R-N303BL.
Budget for this amp/receiver is 500.
