Actually, the 1612 is probably a better choice for the receiver.
The Monitor 60s would probably give you all of the bass you will want for listening to most music, but of course the Monitor 70s have quite a bit more bass.
MY advice, however, would be to get some better speakers than those. There is a fantastic deal right now at Music Direct that I suggest you take advantage of. The Wharfdale EVO2-20 speakers are on closeout there. They are $1200 retail and you can get a pair of them now for only $480. Those are going to sound a LOT better than the Monitor 60s!
Add $250 for the 1612 receiver and you have around $700, and you will have some speakers that will really sound nice. Stretch the budget a little and go first-class!

Any suggestions on a two channel setup which will provide just enough bass to be enjoyable and not completely flat? I'm guessing a budged of 600ish?
I also realize that 600 is probably not enough for this kind of thing :/
(stuff is expensive! haha)
