Alright, so I've decided to go with the Monitor Audio silver line full 5 speaker set up. Now, I'm wondering if my receiver may need an upgrade though. Any thoughts on whether my current receiver will have the power / quality needed for the speakers?

Congrats- that's awesome!

At 75 Watts per channel I'd upgrade the receiver or get an external amp if the receiver has preouts. That's just me, though.

Good choice on speakers - I would aim for some more power, when you
get the opportunity.

If I were you, Id look at www.accessories4less.com check out the Onkyo 808/809 receivers.

Congrats, they are very good speakers.
