Integrated Amplifier for DALI Zensor 1

Hello! I am building up a entry starter hifi system for me. Very small room.

I have Dali Zensor 1 speaker waiting to connect something better then my actual AV receiver Denon 1802..

I have found a few models but I need an advice what would be the best match for my speakers. Option I found in shops here:

- Pioneer A-30 - my no1 at this moment. I like the look and the price is pretty nice (260€). And Pioneer offer a nice network player N-30 and CD/SACD player.

- entry level NADs - C216BEE (320€), C226BEE (440€), I really don't like how they looks but I am not buying amp to look at it :P Many people says NAD are best but it's entry level so maybe not the best option

- Yamaha A-S500 - 350€, I heard Yamaha is not best match for Dali, didn't heard though

- Harman Kardon HK980 (360-400€), Marantz PM6004 (450€), Denon PMA720AE (370€), entry Cambridge Audio Azur amp?

 

I can audition only a few of them (Harman, maybe Pioneer or NAD) but in different studios which for my nontrained ears won't help I think.. I would need all of them home and a free weekend :D

 

Sources will be PC with Envy24 soundcard (Terratec Aureon Space 7.1), Blueray player Panasonic DMT-BDP310. Later I will add headphones amp with DAC (Beresford or Camrbidge Audio maybe), CD player and Network player.

What would you suggest from the listed ones? Thanks for any advice! :)

I asked two sellers and they

I asked two sellers and they both told me it doesn't matter in this price category. So I bought one which I liked design and is cheap :)
