Question My new stereo setup

Hey guys, I'm looking for a stereo setup (standmounts and amp) to my 20m2 room for around £1000.
My main source of music is Tidal, so it would be great if amp could be capable of streaming or at least had DAC built-in to connect Chromecast Audio (I will consider external DAC if amp sounds marvelous). I listen to electronic music, alternative rock and some hip-hop.
I thought about Dynaudio Emit M20 but I think in my room I can't provide them sufficient distance from the wall (max 20cm).
Recently I tested Focal Aria 906 and I loved the details and vocals but I needed just a tiny bit more of bass. Im not sure whether it is their way of playing or the amp I used was too weak (Pioneer A-40AE).

Richer Sounds have some good deals on at the moment, the below covers what you are looking for methinks and the speakers will easily take a couple of levels higher amp wise if you want to upgrade

Do you think that 20cm is enough for KEF LS50?

I'd also give Rick's suggestion serious consideration.

Edit: Aria 906 will never shake the paint off of your walls, but they do have nice bass with better amplification (ran a pair with Arcam A19 and Naim Unitiqute 2 + Nap100 and never found them lacking in a 16 sqm room). But for your budget, it would be hard to beat a system with actives, like the one Rick suggested.
