So currently I have nothing setup, but have narrowed down on speakers and am looking for what avr/power amp/dac are required to make work everything I desire.
Id like to be able to have a 2ch setup for a main tv/kitchen/living area, with speakers to play:
- music currently on a hard drive (internal and external);
- tv/movies through streaming apps like Netflix through a Fetch box or a Xbox1 or a Chromecast;
- streaming apps/Youtube through casting from an iphone.
Sound quality of music is the priority, but I do find it much easier to hear spoken words on tv with separate speakers.
I have been looking at Ascension speakers from Adelaide and talked to the guy there last year. The likely model will be around 150 wrms at 8 ohms. I will call him again to discuss, but if I remember correctly from what he recommended last time, an AVR to drive such speakers is expensive relative to the speakers just to offer extra channels that I don't need. Would a suitable alternative be a 2ch power amp plus a second device to hand all the digital inputs?
Emotiva BASX A-300 or AMC: 2N100MKII-2 are both 150w 8ohm power amps for about $800, but an AVR that can do 150w at 8 ohms are about $5k - what am I missing here? Ive looked into this several times over the last year and I feel like I am just going round in circles.
Any help would be appreciated. Cheers.

I upgraded to a Giesler Gros in my main system last year. I didn't want to part with this but what's the point in it sitting in a cupboard? Its not the latest thing in dac terms but it still sounds terrific. I'm also amenable to a swap with cash either way for a decent CD transport - something like a Cyrus CD T
