I know this topic gets thrown around a lot, but I recently bought a pair of Ascend Acoustic Sierra 1s I love and a Hsu VTF2 MK5 subwoofer. Right now, I'm using a Denon AVR-X2600H to power them. \n\nI hear a lot of chatter that I'm not getting the most out of my speakers using the AVR on a 2.1 system. The drawback is my room is not treated, and I like having the bass management. \n\nIt seems difficult to find an integrated with 100wpc+, ability to stream things like Tidal, that also has ability to at least EQ the low bass, and have the ability to connect to digital sources like a PS4\/5. I do like the idea of a better built power source, and I will never go past 2.1 or 2.2, so the 9\/11 channels are a bit of a waste on me. Most of what I do is music and TV. \n\nAny suggestions are appreciated.
