I still need some simplicity for the next few years which is why i've decided to upgrade my reciever to another reciever instead of a pre amp and an amp. I have a Yamaha HTR-5640 (75x6) hooked up to Athenas and i couldn't be more unsatisfied I need help in figuring out what recievers would sound good on Athenas cause they're bright, and yamaha is bright, and it's just one bright and sunshiney day. I want to spend about $2,000 on the reciever and would rather it be 6.1 or 7.1 incase i ever decide to put a rear center in the center of the back of the room standing out like a sorethumb right infront of the entrance way. I definetly want more watts (and dont think i havent seen 75 watt recievers that cost over $2,000!!!!!) despite my 91-93db sensitivity range of the speakers, i run my reciever hot alot....OK almost everytime. A little bit over $2,000 is good to. I was hoping for something CLOSE to twice the watts i have like 120 or more cause my speakers just dont go loud enough without the reciever getting super super hot followed by it shutting down. I dont plan on getting it until December or January so if any good recievers are supposed to come out during that time dont be shy. Thanks.
