I currently have the Andrew Jones Pioneer speakers.
I have the floor standers - fl51's for the fronts
Cs21 for the center
Bs41's for the rear.

They are all rated up to 130watts and have a 6 ohm impedance. From what i hear they are not the most efficient speakers but they sound really good to my ears.

I'm limited on rack space so I was looking into the marantz 1403. It can do 6 ohm and has the discrete 5 amplifiers rated at 50 watts PC.
Does this mash up work? I just want to make sure I can listen loud enough without having to have it 80% to max. I don't blare my music super loud, but would like to listen to movies louder. I just want something that can push them correctly and the safest for both the sake of my speakers and my future amplifier.

I have a budget of 400.

Thanks guys

You could save money by getting last year's 1402 or 1602 (best deal). I don't think the 1403 offers many new features. 50W per channel should be sufficient for the Pioneers unless your listening space is cavernous.

Amazon had the 1602 for the same 399 price as the 1403 but I missed it. It's now around 550 for a new. I only noticed the 1402 for used. I have a 100 amazon gift card, otherwise I would look elsewhere.
