welcome to the boards! i'm admittedly no authority on the recievers you mentioned, however if you look in the "Hearing Things" section of the boards, under the auditions here, you might find someone that lives near you that'll be glad to show off their speakers for you.

Get the EP600. Trust me on this one. It'll blow you away.

Oh yeah, the 80s are pretty damn good, too.

currently i own YAMAHA RX-Z1 AND ENERGY ENCORE SPEAKERS WITH SONY 32 WEGA AND SONY PROGRESSIVE DVD PLAYER.

If your going to get the m80's, you need to be sure your receiver will drive their 4ohm design. Not familiar with the Z1, but I know some others have had issues with their Yammy's going into shutdown mode if they get to hot.

No. Both of those have ample power.

Oh yeah, I also think your current set-up is just fine and dandy. I would upgrade speakers and sub and leave everything else. The Yamaha you have now should power any new speakers with ease.
