Don't you just hate that when you do a copy and paste and it carries over the text formatting too. The text ends up either teeny-tiny or mahoosive. lol Now the speaker model confirmed, I'd definitely say that they're going to be the bottleneck on performance. It's not going to make much difference to the fidelity of the sound whether it's a good £330 stereo amp or a £300-£350 AV receiver. The speakers will flatten out most (if not all) of the amp benefits. If that's the case, I'd side with @hornetstinger and choose the convenience of an AV receiver. A Marantz NR-series might be a good bedroom AV receiver. They're half the height of traditional AV receivers, but still fully featured. The NR-1510 is 5.1, has optical and coaxial inputs plus 5x HDMI ins and an ARC/eARC HDMI out. That's good for future-proofing the compatibility with future TV upgrades. Front channel power is 50 W + 50 W (8 Ω/ohms, 20 Hz – 20 kHz with 0.08 % T.H.D.). That's pretty much the same measurement method as the Denon PMA-600ne, and the wattage is bloomin' close too. £369.
