I'm looking for a processor that might be able to roughly compete on cost with reasonably modest receivers from the likes of Denon, Marantz, Yamaha etc, with similar features, but without the bulk and amplification. My setup uses active monitors exclusively, so it feels silly to buy one of these enormous receivers with amplification that I'll never use. However, I'm not coming up with much when I look around. Could anyone offer any suggestions? I generally care about price and size perhaps more than the absolute largest possible number of features, though I would like to be technologically current and potentially able to integrate Atmos speakers down the line. Thanks ahead for whatever advice you could provide.
