I have been blessed by a stereophile uncle with a pair of Martin Logan Ascent speakers which he has decided do not hold a candle to his Quad 57's. Right now I only have a 6 year old H/K AVR 40 receiver. I have been told that it is significantly underpowered for those speakers. It has been suggested that I go find a Rotel RB-991. Any other suggestions for what to use for less than say $1500. I would consider used equipment as well. I also would not necessarily require a ht setup, hifi is fine with me. Thanks for all the advice I've gotten here, this place is great.
