New setup recommendations

I currently have no gear and am looking to get a new setup. I want to start with getting an amp and speakers. Down the road I will eventually want to play vynil, but for right now I will be streaming my music. I have a budget of about 1000 to 1500. Been doing research and haven’t fully wrapped my mind around of a lot of things. I like what I hear about Schiits products. Any form of help would definitely be appreciated.

Welcome @shakuhachi.

I’ll go first with a tip I hope isn’t so basic that you find it unhelpful:

Given your modest budget, I would plan on buying second-hand kit.

Have fun on your journey and I hope others chime in here.
