    Partial system:

    Denon AVR 2803
    Denon 2900
    NHT super zeroes front, and sides, and rears.
    Matching NHT center.

    I recently purchased a used pair of NHT Super Two towers which will are a sonic match for the zeroes and center.

    My 2803 is rated by Denon at 90watts channel.

    Should I consider getting a two channel amp to drive the towers?

    I'm open to any suggestions, and possible amp suggestions as well.

    I'm not adverse to going used, as the only piece of equipment I have bought new is the 2803.

    Price range would be $200-$400 is that is even possible. Otherwise I'll wait 'till next summer.

    I have the more powerful 3805 and I still use a two channel amp (Adcom in my case) to drive my towers. Go for it.

    I would look for maybe a used bryston 3b-ST. Bryston makes great amps. I have the 4b-ST and 5b-ST. The difference in the sound you get from your speakers will be noticable.
