Recently decided to jump into dedicated components rather than an all-in-one receiver solution. I've acquired some Wharfedale Opus 2-2's (plus the tri-center match) and from what I've read my Pioneer Elite simply won't do them justice even at 140 watts/channel. So. Now I'm looking at a five or seven channel amplifier in concert with my Pioneer VSX 74 as a pre-amp until I can pony up the cash for a bonifide pre-amp. After calling around and reading some threads it appears I'll need a good amplifier so that the Wharfedale's can sing since they are rated as 6 ohm speakers needing anywhere between 100 and 500 watts of clean power. Because I'm totally new to this, I need some advice as to what I can do.
