    Looking for suggestions for which would be the best option for my speaker upgrade, M&K 851 and SW50 should arrive on Friday.

    I have a Yamaha rx-v596 now, should I add an amp or upgrade the receiver?

    These are what I've looked into so far,
    Denon 3805
    Pioneer Eltie 54tx

    Any other brands that I should consider?

    Know nothing about amps. Also have hardwood flooring, so don't want anything that's going to be too bright.

    Thanks,
    Keith

    I'd stick with the receiver you've got before making a descision on upgrading. It's highly probable that your receiver will be perfectly adequate.

    Not a chance with that Yamaha and M&K speakers. I've owned the 5xx line and they can't cope with 4ohm speakers.

    Checkout HK 7300.
