E-Bay, U-bid, and a few other sites are also selling Acoustic Research towers for about $150 shipped. Think they are the AR SA-40(?).
Also, I have the Panny SA-XR50. My set-up is JBL EC35 center (rated at 150 watts), S38II's for mains(rated at 175 watts), N26's for surrounds, and dual N24's wired in series for the surround back. I also used a Yamaha HTR-5590 and a Pioneer Elite VSX-41 to drive the same set-up. I tried the former receivers for about 2 months each. The Panny (XR45) has been measured at 82 real watts per channel with 5 channels driven through Sound and Vision Mag. The Yammy measured at 38 watts per channel with 5 channels driven...
You won't have to worry about power with the Panny for the speakers you are considering.
