Hi I will be purchasing my Grand master 500 within the next few months. I am very excited!! I was wondering what you use to power these babies.

Welcome cyannkillspetey.
Any receiver should have no problem powering your system, although most of us tend to stick with the major brands, HK,Denon,Yamaha,Onkyo, my advice would be to find a receiver with the options you want in your price range and go from there.

Welcome to the family.

I agree with Mike that most good AVR's will drive those speakers with no problems. I would also stick to a reputable name. What is your budget? What is your room size? There are lots of great receivers out there...

Well if i am going to do this, I am gonna do this right the first time. No more than 900 I guess. I am looking at the Denon 2807. My room size might be on the medium or medium to small range. I will be living in Hawaii. But I wanna be able to expand If and when I move into a larger place. Thats why I am going with the bookshelves rather than the floorstanders.

Imho the 2807 would be a great choice, also if you decide to upgrade in the future to floorstanders like the M80's, the 2807 will have no problem driving the 4ohm load.

Welcome Cy,

IMHO, the 2807 would be a fine choice.

It is hard to go wrong with any of the brands mentioned on this thread.

It's a bit more money than you were speaking of, but I'm a big fan of Rotel products and they recently released a new receiver with dual HDMI inputs.

Cy, I have the Denon 2805 which is about a 1.5yrs old. My room is 30ft x 30ft and it has no problems driving my 7.1 system. The 2807 is newer, so you would have no issues.

Also, wherever you buy it, make sure you purchase from a reputible local retailer or online etailer, otherwise, the warranty may not apply.

Sirquack,

Have you had problems with your Denon? I live in Canada and am considering buying a referbed 2805 from ecost.com for $530CAD which is perfect for me. I am not planning on worrying about the warranty becuase I am expecting the 2805 to last for a long time without a service call.

-Robb.

I purchased my Denon AVR-885 (AVR-2105) from Ecost and it has been operating flawlessly for well over a year now. There is a repair depot locally that handles Denon products so I am not too concerned.
