Best $1.5k - $2.0k receiver / amp, looking at the NAD C388
Looking at getting a receiver / amp for some Ohm Walsh (3000 or 4000 series) speakers that have 40 - 350 watt rating ranges, 88 db sensitivity and for which reviews state more amp wattage makes for better performance. My wife streams music and we will be running a 4k TV and Xbox through them along with Direct TV and TV streaming apps. Have a smaller storage space for the receiver / amp so don't want something that will run really hot. Debating getting speaker versions with and also without a sub - haven't yet decided. At most would have 2 main speakers and 1 or 2 subs. Not considering a full home theater at this time.
Looking at the NAD C388. What else should I consider? Should I get separates or an integrated system? Please provide your wisdom and hardware recommendations that you think would meet my needs. Thanks.
