Hello and welcome aboard the HTS! :wave:

I would look at a receiver that has a direct or pure audio mode. this turns off all processing inside the receiver giving the best raw sound to the speakers.
Onkyo or Denon are popular brands and tend to be slightly more natural sounding although generally all amps will be very close in sound. Room treatment speaker placement and how well you run the auto room correction will give you the most varying results.
