Then with that budget and for those speakers you should be looking into either a good pre-pro or AVR with pre-outs and adding an amp. These combinations will give you much better options to be looking into. Don't spend $2K on an AVR alone unless you only have room for this one piece scenario. The amp will be there for a long time, the AVR's change constantly. Next time you upgrade get another lower cost AVR with pre-outs and you'll be good to go. JMHO.
