I have used my quintuples with Marantz SR6005 without any issues (the receiver is rated at 8 ohms) and then added two Crown XLS 1500s to drive the LCRs. The dynamics have certainly improved.
I was originally thinking about Emotiva XPA-3 but went with the recommendation of some members of this thread
Crowns are much lighter, provide more power and an extra channel for same price.
I would recommend the Crowns.
