All I can say is I wonder what they sound like, doesnt look like much to me. Anyway thats not the point.

As amplifiers go you should have quality rather then quantity. A good 80 wpc will produce much better results then a cheap 200watt. Unless the speakers are current hungry, but aslong as the sensativity is OK, and the amplifier can deliver good watts into 4 ohms you should be OK.

However you are considering a home cinema thingymabob I would imagine, I wouldnt bothering paying more then about $500 for one, those speakers are not really worth any more then the budget arena.
What the hell are you screamin' for? Every five minutes there's a bomb or somethin'! I'm leavin! bzzzz! Now with website! www.5een.co.uk under construction.
