    I am looking for a decent sound system for my music collection on my iMac as well as for connecting to my TV as the speakers on my TV are totally rubbish.

    I was looking at the following options but need some advice as to the best option.

    Would the following amps allow both the iMac and TV to be connected simultaneously?

    My iMac has a toslink/SPDIF connector and my TV has optical, RCA, HDMI ARC connectors.

    The amps I was looking at are:

    Audiolab 8000A or 8000S
    Yamaha AS500
    NAD D 3020

    The advantage of the NAD is that it also has blutooth for my iPhone and iPad.

    But I have heard that the Audiolab amps have really good sound as does the Yamaha?

    Alternatively I could just get a sound bar for the TV like a JBL S400?

    Also forgot to mention that I would also be listening via headphones from time to time so an amp that also has a decent headphone amp would be good.
