Hey all, looking for suggestions for a reasonably priced network controllable 2ch amp to use to drive some built-in speakers. Does anyone here know of something that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, and is either Spotify capable, or plays nice with a Chromecast?

What's your definition of resonably priced
Yamaha does a music cast amp which is two channel amp with their streaming service built in. Which includes Spotify and airplay.

They also do a smaller amp (smaller than their 5.1 systems) with music cast as well. I both are about the $600-1000 mark.

Yamaha RN402 or RXV483 (the latter are home theatre amps that will do just fine).

 

Spotify / Deezer / Tidal / Airplay / Bluetooth / web radio etc.
