[QUOTE=Brett Chartier;49244601]I am looking for help with picking a receiver and possibly an amp to power the following 7.2 setup, subs I have not decided on so leaving them out for now looking to get the speakers first. Most receivers only go up to 135 watts at 8ohms and from the specs of some of the speakers no where near enough to properly drive them. What is a good receiver to start for this setup and what amp can provide the full 300 watts RMS to the towers and the 225 watts to the center and 175 watts to the surround? The receiver also needs to support all the new standards like 4k HDR pass though and all that.
Thankyou very much for any help

I don't know what a PL-*** is/are, but if they are 6 Ohm, then the Pioneer, Onkyo, Denon, Marantz, Yamana AVR's will probably serve you well, if your sub-woofer/s have their own power. If the PL-***s are 8 Ohms, then you need to be looking at more powerful and very much more expensive amps/avrs. If you want a more specific answer, it might be a good idea to provide more information about the PL-***s: specs, makers, you know something more than PL-***. Also - why would you have a PL-980 for LF and PL-80 for RF?
You might also look at the room correction software that is provided by the AVR companies. Each company has its own correction software. Which one would be good for you?
