....first of all, should I not sit my new tuner (when I get it) on top of the amp? Also, if I were to buy a DAB tuner, could I connect it to my amp via left and right? My amp doesn't have coax or optical. I've got Creek Evo amp. I plan to get Creek Evo tuner, or Denon DAB tuner or Denon 1500ae.

No, you shouldn't put anything on top of your amp, for reasons of potential interference and heat dispersion. In fact, stacking any equipment up is a bit of a no-no for the same reasons.

And yes, connection via analogue left and right is just fine.
