Totem Power - Model 1 Signatures

Two questions:

1. What rears match up best with the model 1 signature fronts and center if i am mainly listening to home theater (with music I am mainly just using the front two channels)?

2. Is my integrated Marantz SR7002 receiver enough to drive the Model 1 Signatures or is that a bad match? I was told that I should be using a preamp and amp for best results.

the marantz will not do your totems justice. get a good amp/preamp combination that has a passthru so you can hook your marantz up but have the better sound of the separates. i hooked up my yamaha rxv1 to my model 1's and then my mani's and it was terrible compared to my audio only setup.
try a classe ca-200 amp and a classe cp-60 preamp. that is what i use for my totem mani 2's. another good pick would be a macintosh mc-252 with their 200 preamp.
