I'm looking for a new integrated or stereo amp. Would like to stay in the $1000-1500 range and would like HDMI arc.
This will be to power Revel m106's. Was looking at a powernode, NAD c3050 or c700. Any suggestions?

If practical, consider sampling a device that let's one apply parametric EQ or 'room correction' to your listening space. Many Denon/Marantz AVR's support the Audessey MultEQ Editor App that Amir reviewed and recommended. The WiiM Amp currently supports 4 bands of parametric EQ and the upcoming Onkyo TX-8470 stereo receiver appears to come with a license for Dirac Live (full band) room correction software.

would like HDMI arc

That limits the number of suitable models quit a bit ...

I asked ChatGPT about it :facepalm: :cool: It prompted me with this list:

Marantz PM7000N
Yamaha A-S801
Denon PMA-150H
NAD C 388
Cambridge Audio CXA81

Seems that most of the ChatGPT candidates have no HDMI ARC ...

Looking for the Marantz model led me to the Marantz Stereo 70s. Maybe that fits.

I am going through trying to build a similar setup... my thinking is

AMP: Topping LA90D
DAC: Topping D90 III

but with eARC & Streamer type usage,... maybe

AMP: Topping LA90D
DAC + eARC + Streamer(BlueOS): Node X

Any thoughts or guidance? I worry the LA90D cant power my B&W 606 speakers sufficiently for louder TV viewing or a small party in my living room :)
