Probably any of the better HK/Denon/Yamaha/Sony ES receivers would be OK as long as you don't want to go too loud.
Thanks for the suggestions. I have looked at all of the above but my issue is spending 3-5 times what the speakers cost to get a really top end receiver to drive them. In addition the system is going to be 2.0 or 2.1 so no need for countless surround settings, maybe I should look at an integrated amplifier?
There is no need to spend a lot of money - I would go with a used stereo receiver or integrated from the 90's. I got a nice little Sony ES receiver for $40 on the auction sight that did a decent job.
Or new the Yamaha RX-797 or Harmon Kardon 3490 should work fine and be under $500 if you shop around.
