Well I've been spending a lot of time trying to decide what are the best amps to drive my setup. I have a Denon2802, and just ordered a Parasound855 I know these both are capable of 85 X 5 watts per speaker. I'm expecting a big difference in the Para. I'm thinking of a Parasound 2003(200 X3) for the front and center. If the Diva 6.1 are rated at 20-200 watts and I get the parasound 2003 there is no need to upgrade this because it is at the recommended max? Am I right here? Well after I decide I will use my other Parasound855(leave one chan open) to drive my 4 R3's at 4ohms into 125watts. These speakers are rated 20-150 watts. I am very close to there max but will that 25 watts (out of the 4 surrounds) really sound that much different? I listen at reference and in a 20 X 30 bedroom. Sorry if this comes off as a simple question I just want the best setup so there is no need to upgrade for a while.
