Whatever amp/speaker combination you decide to go with make SURE impediences are compatable. If the amp says 8 ohm then you want 8 ohm speakers...not 6 ohm that say they"re 8 compatable.
Found this out the hard way with my H/K avr, which like nodescene I would recomend.
I could link a site (Canadian) with some really nice prices but since I haven"t personally bought there I won"t.

I'm surprised to hear that. I have a pair of good sized three ways that I was running off my HK AVR235 that are 4ohm designs. And with most 4ohm three ways there is an impedance dip where the woofers hand off to the mid (~300-400Hz) down to about 3ohms. I haven't seen an impedance curve for my speakers so I'm just guessing. But the HK had no problems with them, nor does the Denon 789 that they are powered off of now. I wonder if what you had, had something crazy going on with the impedance or the phase???
