I have a 8ohm/6ohm receiver, but if I would like to get an amp for the pre outs so I could use M80ti (4ohm) speakers what is the best amp to attach to my RX-V2500 receiver?

Best bang for the 4ohm M80ti buck?

First, I believe a couple of people have used M80s on a 2500 without problems as long as they don't really crank the volume. Not 100% sure but I think so...

The most common choice for amps seems to be the Outlaw Monoblocks, single channel ~200w amps at a decent price. The other good option, of course, is "whatever you happen to find used at a good price". You're going to be wanting a fairly hefty amp, and I don't think there are a lot of bad choices in the high end amp range. Hopefully if there ARE bad choices someone will jump in and correct me

Yes Ken, it's highly likely that the 2500 will be just fine for M80s, and at the 8 ohm, not 6 ohm, setting. A problem shouldn't be assumed.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.
