I need some help in selecting a new receiver. I am running an older Yamaha HTR 5940 currently which does not even have HDMI. I recently got some Polk monitor 70s with the matching center. It doesn't seem to put out the sound that I was really looking for and I was thinking I may need to push more power to them? I was running Klipsch quintets before...and I just thought these floorstanding speakers would sound much better than they do. The problem is that the current receiver does 85w per channel and it's very difficult to find receivers under $500 that push much more power. I hate to spend $500 and get 5 more watts per channel. I have been looking at Denon receivers - and best buy was trying to tell me the 1613 was 120w/channel but Denon's website says 75w/channel? Maybe power isn't as much of an issue as I think it is....and there just seems to be so many options for receivers out there and I don't know which way to go. Any help/thoughts would be appreciated.
