It's a nice list but asking us to find a system that will sound good to you is not going to work.
That's not the point. I picked these because I liked how they sound. So I'm okay with anyone of these, no matter if the prices are not the on the same range or there are different category speakers and amps. The question is, do you think there's a good value combination in this list? And which speakers pairs best with the listed amps and if you think the price is right.

Then pick the cheapest... and don't pay for features you do not need. Some of the amps listed have streaming built in and some do not...decide what you need.
I think you need to get your list down to your top three....then choose. 👍
I was going to say pretty much the same thing. There's too much variation in the listed amps. If you don't need an inbuilt DAC or streaming section, or even a phono stage then don't pay for it. The OP needs to ascertain what functions are required and then shorten the list accordingly.
Get the speakers sorted first as to what works the best then worry about the amp
