Suggestions for a multiroom pre-amp

I recently purchased a set of totem forest speakers after falling in love with them after many listening sessions. I am now working on finding a pre-amp/amp to match up with them. I initially was thinking about running sound off a zone of my HT receiver, but thought I would best be able to take advantage of these wonderful speakers with a more dedicated set up. Any suggestions on pre-amps that would run two rooms and amp that would match up well. I will likely need some decent power given the nature of the speakers so I don't know that an integrated would fit the bill. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks. Oh, the budget used or new is roughly $1500 or a few bucks more.
