System help 6k EUR budget for amp and speakers

Hello,

I am trying to build a system around the RME ADI2 DAC as pre-amp.
Room is 140 m³ or 4944.05 ft³.

The set up will be Laptop > RME ADI2 DAC > Power Amp (via XLR) > Speakers

Speakers I am interested in:
Dynaudio Special 40 (I listened to these through a McIntosh MA252)
Goldeanear Triton Two+ (I am demoing these soon with a Parasound A23+)
Roksan Derius S1 (Cannot demo these)

Possible power amps:
SST Son of AmpZilla II
Mytek Brooklyn AMP
Primare A35.2

I listen to all genres from Tom Waits to Dissection passing by Jordi Savall, The Wu-Tang, and Brad Mehldau. What I mean is a would like a flexible system. I am not a treble freak and I do like my bass. If I go for bookshelves I might add a sub later. No tubes for now.

Any recommendation, comment or idea is welcome, especially about pairing the above gear.

Thanks

I know that the Primaire A35.2 is excellent, and recommend it.

I also recommend Dynaudio speakers.

Yeah the Special 40s I listed

Yeah the Special 40s I listed too and they are quite something. My problem is that I do not have a current system so nothing to compare with.

What did you like about the Primare? Does the bass dig deep enough for Metal and DnB music? I surprisingly found the MA 252 lacking in that and it was not powerful enough to reach the impact I am looking for.
