Well as the title would suggest, I am looking for any suggestions to power my Klipsch speakers.
I have: 2 Klipsch WF-35 speakers for front left and right. 150W RMS handling if I remember right
1 klipsch WC-24 center channel 90W RMS handling.
4 Klipsch WB-14 for surrounds 40W RMS handling
Right now I have a denon 1213 receiver that does a decent job, but you can really tell it doesn't have the power to run all the channels at decent power when I switch to multichannel music (I use it in the basement for parties as well) and there have been some scenes in movies that felt could have used more power. I have looked at Marantzs offerings and really like what they have, but I know that you are really paying for the name with them. So I ask if anyone has any suggestions for 7 channel dedicated amps and a pre amp/receiver for my speakers? The only feature other than decoding for DD HD and DTS HD audio streams is some form of room correction like my Denon has with audyssey. I love how it sounds after the calibration! I'd be looking to pay as much 4,500 maximum for it all, but I would prefer it be more in the realm 1500, but I k ow you start talking in dollar signs when you talk about dedicated amps. I'm planning on upgrading sometime next year if possible.
Thanks in advance!

What price range are you looking at? That will make a difference. Something in the 100-120 watt range should be a good match. Yamaha, Pioneer, Marantz, Denon all make good product. Look for the features that you want. Even features that I thought I did not need, I find myself using with My Pioneer Elite avr. I drive and RF 7 system.

Klipsch RF 7 based HT 7.4, Pioneer SC 35, Acurus Five 200 amp, Chase SS 18.2(2), VS 18.1(2), Samsung BDP F 7500, Asus/My Book Live HPC 4 TB

Yaquin VK 2100 amp, McIntosh XR 5 speakers, Samsung BDP F 7500

I Have the Icon series speakers that are powered by a Denon 4520ci and it sounds incredible.
