Should I buy a seperate amp for my Pioneer Elite VSX-21?

    I have a Pioneer Elite VSX-21 receiver powering the following speakers.

    Polk Audio CS300 Center
    Polk Audio RT35 Fronts
    Polk Audio M3II Rears

    I can't help but think that the amp in the Pioneer receiver isn't getting the best performance from the speakers. Would it make sense to add a 5ch amp to this setup? Do you think it would make much of a difference?

    I would. I run a Pioneer elite VSX36 and I use 2 Carver amps. They sound better and give me more headroom.
