Hi everyone
I am considering buying a pair of M80's but I am also looking for an amp that would drive these babies. Can anyone give me a suggestion what amp would go well with these speakers? I like a lot of power and my amp budget is in $1000 - $1500 range.

Thanks a lot in advance

Is this for a stereo setup or an h/t setup ? What are you using for a preamp ?

it's a stereo set up. I DJ so there is a DJ mixer (Stanton RM-100) that would be connected. Having a traditional receiver between an amp and DJ Mixer seems redundant to me, but hey I'm
a newbie so I may be wrong Basically what I'm trying to do is have a home DJ setup that would sound great. I'll probably upgrade my mixer sometime down the road but figured it's best to start with speakers and amp.

I'm not familar with DJ equipment so I don't know how that set up would work.

Some amps that I would suggest is Rotel , Parasound , Outlaw and Odyssey

I've actually been considering Odyssey Stratos. Anyone have experienced this amp with M80's?

Are there any Rotel, Parasound, Outlaw and Odyssey models you'd especially recommend (to go with M80's)?

If you're looking at 300 watts per channel or so look at the Rotel RB 1080, Parasound 2250, Outlaw 2200 M block and from Odyssy the Stratos.

This is supposed to be a pretty good amp that can be upgraded to a 3 to 7 channel if desired. LINK
