Good day sirs/madams,

I have:

- 2x sb-cr77 (200W @ 8 ohms), and
- 2x sb-cr55 (140W @ 8 ohms)

Technics speakers.

From all the receivers i have come across, only the Marantz SR-96 seems like a contender (225W/channel), but it doesn't have DTS..

Is there a reasonably new receiver out there that is not more expensive than the speakers combined that can handle them?

Budget would be helpful. And those numbers for those speakers are maximums not minimums. So there are a lot of receivers that will work with those speakers.

Well, the speakers are probably worth $200 for the lot, so somewhere around there.. i don't need anything really high end, just something that matches these speakers well, that can push them and still have fidelity such that it's not something i'm having to deal with.. any suggestions?

This would work very well and is about as inexpensive as you can get.
