Separate amps can be upgraded in stages.
Separate amps allow one amp to fail and 1/2 the system still works
Separate amps allow them to be mounted in separate locations.

"All in one" what may be cheaper, and also less wires potentially running around.

so it is indeed possible to run my entire system on one amplifier with enough watts and channel?

It will generally be a 5 channel, but in theory with passives, then a 3-channel.
A three way front would need 7 channels.

My advice if to take your time and try to only buy once, if you are on any sort of a budget.

What do you already have as far as speakers go?
