I'm thinking of buying a set of B&W 685s from Best Buy (too lazy to shop around) and would like to know what receiver I should get. I am considering the Denon, Pioneer Elite and Marantz in the $450-500 range. Leaning toward the Denon AVR X-1000, as it seems to have more power . I like the slim profile of the Marantz NR-1504, but don't know if the power will be enough. This is for a medium-size living room, mostly for music, but since I have it I might as well hook it up to my TV.

Two specific questions:

1) Is this price range and power "enough" to match the speakers?
2) Which brand/model would you recommend?
