    If you want loud, you are going to need to go above the 230, IMO. The 7s will like plenty of power to go loud, not as much as Studios, but still the more the better. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend anything lower than the 430, but the 330 should do OK as well, and has pre-outs if you find you need to add more amplification down the road.

    I have the same setup as Mike, except I have the Hk avr525. I think they mate with Paradigm perfectly. I may add amps later to move to seperates, but this receiver gets plenty loud.

    I have:
    Monitor 5's
    CC370
    Mini monitors
    PS1000

    Running it is:
    Sherwood Newcastle R-863T
    TEAC DV-10D DVD player.

    Crisp, clear and powerful audio is the result.

    Anthem is solid. You can also do Rotel at that price, and you can probably get a 1075 for less than $1500 final price.

    Looking over your thread again though, I'm confused. Do you need a receiver or an amplifier? They are not the same thing. A receiver is a combination of an amplifier and a processor, whereas an amplifier is just that. It has speaker outputs and single inputs for each channel. It doesn't decode DTS/DD/whatever...since you were looking at H/K initially, I was thinking you needed a receiver, but then you said you were looking at Anthem...which implies separates...

    Confused.......

    But in any event, you could always pickup a less expensive receiver with preouts to act as a processor and couple it with the Rotel amp for less than $2000, which is about the final price of an H/K 630 in Canada...
