any receiver will drive those speakers, just find one within your budget and that has the bells and whistles your looking for. I would look at something from Denon, Onkyo, Yamah, HK, etc. , I'm not a Sony fan, sorry. I would also carefully check all your wire connections, even "one" strand touching the other terminal, or bad speaker wires will set a receiver into protect mode.
