Budget receiver/amp for Tannoy Mercury V4i

Tannoy Mercury V4i

I went ahead and bought the Tannoy Mercury V4i yesterday (50% sale for the entire 5.0 set).
Hooked the V4i's to my Pioneer VSX-923 and they sound pretty darn good for the price. My receiver seems to be able to handle them well. Haven't heard them clip even when played loud.

My parents were wondering how we should power these speakers, and I told them not to worry as I would purchase another amp for them to have in the living room.

There's a tiny problem tho. Their TV-stand is an old "dresser"-kinda thing, so it's not really meant for storing electronics.

There might be room for a slim amp/receiver like the Rotel RA-11 below the TV-bezel, but preferably I would want something that sits behind the TV, but I fear a NAD D3020 wouldn't be able to drive the speakers at a reasonable loud volume and there seems to be some complaints about that amp on this forum.
There's currently a sale on Yamaha HTR-2067 for 130$.

Do you guys/ladies have any recommendations as to which amp to go with? It's kind of important to get digital inputs (optical or HDMI) and enough power to drive them loud enough for when the song competitions(X-factor/The voice) are on.

Budget: Was hoping to stay below 400$.

Specs on speakers:
Recommended amplifier power (Watts RMS): 10 - 140
Continuous power handling (Watts Peak RMS): 100
Peak power handling (Watts): 200
Senstivity(2.83 Volts @ 1m): 91 dB
Nominal Impedance (Ohms): 8
