Amp for Special 40's

Hey folks!
Need help choosing an amp for Dynaudio Special 40's, budget is ~$1700 max.

1) Denon 1600NE Integrated amp

2) Schiit Freya Pre-amp + Vidar power amp

Or should I try to find something better in the used market? 
My room is pretty small so don't need a lot of volume.
my vote would be 2 over 1 you mentioned

in a small room pretty much any decent integrated would work
brother in law has those w EL tube VTL Integrated, great sound.
My sense with the 40s is that the amp should have some power.
