Depends on
1) Budget?
2) Availability? Where are you located?
3) Do you already have a pre-amp/processor/AVR?
4) Exclusive 2 channel setup or part of a multi purpose multi channel setup?
5) How loud do you listen?
5) How many channels do you need?
6) Will there be a subwoofer(s)?

Kef LS50,Q200C, Q100, SVS SB-2000, Denon AVR-X3400H, NAD 216, Panasonic 50" Plasma, Xbox One.
Bedroom: Kef Q100 ,JBL Loft 20, Bic F-12, Denon AVR-S710W, PS3, 32" Insigna LED.

In your other post, you mention you've got an Onkyo TX-NR737. There's nothing wrong with that.

Thanks for your reply, adding the details below:
1) up to $1000
2) Russia, Msocow
3) No, just onkyo 737 as GIEGAR mentioned below. I also have rotel 1592 but it's in my other room with other set up.
4) I actually have Dali Oberon 5 5.1 package but for tv I'm going to use onkyo 737, amp needed for stereo 2.0 only. Or do you also think Onkyo 737 is good enough for the acoustic for stereo also?
5) answered in 4). If not, then not sure I got you correctly.
6) Yes, but don't think will be using it in stereo mode.

Forgot to mention the room is small, just 12 square meters 130ft²

Thanks GIEGAR,

do you think Onkyo 737 is good enough for stereo only? I heard AV receiver isn't the best option in stereo and even budget amps are much better then more expensive AV receiver when it comes to stereo mode.

Your Onkyo will drive them easily, but being 6ohm speakers they likely dip below 4ohms. A good robust amp would certainly help, but your Onkyo doesn't have pre-outs so you would need to upgrade your receiver if you want an external amp. Adding a sub would certainly take the strain off both the speakers and AVR.
