I sure you'd enjoy either setup, whether it's worth 4x as much for option A, I can't say.So...i narrowed it down to two options.
Option A: Elac Debut DBR62 + Denon HEOS AMP HS2 SRE2
Overall for about 1200 dollars. Stereo with support for subwoofer, aux, TOSLINK network, USB inputs...
Option B: pair of active speakers - Magnat Active 2000 for under 300 dollars.
I'm sure you could save some money on the amp if you wanted to though.
