Hi Kevin, and welcome!
As everyone stated already:
1. Your receiver should be fine, unless you're listening to very high levels for extended periods of time.
2. EP 125 won't do much for you with M80s; I've tried it myself.
3. Do replace you current wire with 14 gauge (or even 12), especially if your speakers will be more than a few feet away from the receiver. It shouldn't be very complicated since you have the wire already; just tied them up at one end and pull from the other. The cost should be reasonable as well.

I think the EP125, EP175 is more for the M2/M3 crowd. I tried EP175 with my M22's and found it came up short. EP350 works excellent with M22's, and I'm thinking about trading up to the EP500 some day, for an even better bass sound.

For wire, I just buy Axioms 12 gauge and then don't have to worry about it.
