I am using a 100 watt per channel 5 channel amp and it works great, my theater never sound better. My speakers could take 1000 watts but at that level my ears would blow up. That extra 10 dBs is not needed ever.
I think if you state what you are doing it would generate better answers. As I said in the other thread, I would think trying out a EP-4000, and then try out a crown amp would be enough. I have used many different pro amps, have you tried using your clone on your mains?
Here is what I would try to cover all the different types of amps.
Crown XTI or DSI
QSC PLX, crown PLX
5 channel B&K, Adcom, or emotiva
5 channel ATI or parasound or cinenova grande
5 channel Sim audio, krell, plinius, or even a used proceed amp5.
This way you have the low end 5 channel and pro covered, the midfi 5 channel and pro audio, and the high end pro and 5 channel.
My favorite amps for mains are:
Pro audio, ashley
5 channel would be nakamichi and gemstone
Marantz 7702 Atmos
3 Inuke NU4-6000 amps for all speakers.
Speakers- 7 Behringer B215XL's, 4 212xl's for ceiling speakers.
Front subs 12 SI 18ht ported SLLT powered by Inuke 6000
Rear subs 2 XXX ported SLLT powered by IPR2-7500.
