I have already bought an Emotiva UPA-5 about a month back and I am confident it wouldn't have any trouble driving those speakers. I just really wanted to verify some facts that maybe an entry to mid grade receiver like mine would have trouble driving all three ohm speakers louder than normal from time to time.

Speakers: Energy RC-70s, RC-LCR, RC-Rs and eD A2-300 x 2.
Receiver: Marantz 6006
