I recommend the Music Hall 15.3 integrated amplifier, which is very good, and is only $549.

IMO the CS10 is not a very good speaker.

You would be well-advised to get a better one.

The TSX150C is $178 from Amazon,so the extra cost only seems to be about $70.

I think that a pair of Pioneer FS52 speakers, with the C22 center speaker, would sound a lot better than the p363 speakers, which to my ears are pretty crude-sounding.

The 3 Pioneers would run...

You need a pair of speakers with 15 inch drivers and a 100-watt per channel amplifier. JBL are the best

With your budget, that will take some serious shopping for used gear; lots of luck.

The oats are much cheaper after they come out of the back end of the horse, too.

Cheap pro amps are for public-address systems; not home audio.
