Don't know if you would consider it, but the Outlaw RR2150 receiver will meet your needs.

I owned the A1008. The blue lights don't blink once it's powered up, and they're almost invisible unless you're in the dark. The power output is substantial. I doubt it would have any trouble driving your speakers. I agree with Br9038. The onboard USB dac was pretty good a few years ago, but it is now pretty outdated.
