I've heard some other stuff but it's just that I was trying to keep from buying an amp right now and klipsch doesn't need as much power to much push them.
Changing speakers will change the sound MUCH more than changing amps. Get the speakers you want now, upgrade the amp later when you can.

There are two well reviewed ebay retailers for Klipsch speakers, I have used one of them 3 times.

And rightly so! All that matters is that you're a card holding member the Klipsch familia!

Unrelated but just saw that you have a Pioneer DVL-909! I also have a DVL-909, a CLD-D505 for backup, and about 120 LaserDiscs titles. I guess there are still a few of us who are old school and have trouble letting go of past technologies. My family calls it hoarding!

As a Charlotte resident, you may appreciate this last unrelated story...

I'm an ex-smoker (Winston) and years ago on a business trip to Charlotte, our group was invited to tour the Speedway. At the time, smoking was starting to be banned from public places. So, during the visit, I asked a Speedway representative where smoking was permitted. Her response was..."Anywhere you like...Don't you realize what state you're in and who the NASCAR sponsors are?" Well Duh?
