Emp Tek is a budget line for RBH a well known speaker manutacurer. At the emp tek website they have may good reviews on their speakers. Gene De Salla is quite impressed with the brand. I suggest reading his articles and use them as guidelines. Not knowing what features are important to you i can only make very vague assumptions. Most receivers will be fine in the 100w range, go by what you can afford and the features that you want.Buying a last year model will let you get a full featured receiver at a discount price. hope this helps.

I'm familiar with Emptek. Decent value. If I were you I would consider adding a subwoofer.
Not that brand though. Then most receivers will easily power that room. What is your budget for receiver?
And what do you connect to it? How do you mostly use it?
