I am running a pair of Acoustic Energy AE1 MkIII in parallel for centers off an Arcam AVR350 and the 280 would run the same. The speakers are nominally 5.6 ohm so two would be 2.8 ohm. Been running them for 10 months and no extra heat and no fan turn-on even running the AVR350 on the 8 ohm position.

So far I'm looking at:
Arcam AVR280 - $2,000 http://www.arcam.co.uk/prod_diva_AVR280_intro.cfm
Rotel 1057 - $1300 http://www.rotel.com/products/specs/rsx1057.htm
Adcom GFR700 - $2,000 http://www.adcom.com/prod/shopdispla...1&cid=46&sid=3
Denon AVR2807 - $1,000 http://usa.denon.com/ProductDetails/3038.asp
The Denon is the cheapest and has all the features but I'm not sure if it can handle going down to 3.2 ohms.
