I'm running a Denon X3400H with a NAD 216 (125W/channel) amp for my LS50's. The X3400 can run the speakers fine on their own, but the NAD gives them a nice boost. For most music stereo with audyssey, dynamic eq and all other processing turned off sounds can pretty nice too if you want the sub involved. Audyssey XT32 does a pretty good job so you may actually like having audyssey on.
