Good question. Given the wattage, you might even consider some lower power tube monoblocks to give you another 3 channels. Alternatively, perhaps a Monarchy Audio SM-70 (25watts per side class A) for the 2 rear channels, leaving you the center channel to fill. The Monarchy can also be bridged to mono, so a second one could give you the center channel, matched of course, but at higher wattage (can't recall, maybe 45-50 watts mono). That might present a problem with appropriate setting of volume levels, but a Rothwell inline attenuator could be used to drop the volume 10db on the center channel bridged monoblock. You'd want to look at the decibel levels to see if that suggestion holds any water. But anyway, you could get creative if you don't find a 3-channel amp that's a perfect match, that's my message I guess.
