I currently own an Axiom pair of M60’s tower speakers, Axiom QS4 surround speakers and Axiom VP 150 center channel. I am considering ordering a Marantz MM7055 5-Channel Power Amplifier and Marantz’s AV7005 preamp/Processor ($2,700 for the combo). Is this a good choice for my Axiom home theater speakers? Is it good for audio listening? Is the Marantz MM7055 5-Channel Power Amplifier powerful enough to move the M60’s?
I also have the choice of buying a used Creston CNAMPX-7X200 amplifier ($1,500). Is this a better choice than the Marantz combo?
My budget is around $2,700 for amp and preamp in case of better suggestions. Please advice, thanks
Alfonso

The m60's are very efficient and don't require a lot of power to play very loud. How big is your room. Seems like a lot of money to spend and if your room is not that big, might be overkill.

I would go (or at least try with their 30 days in-home trial) for Emotiva UPA-700 and an UMC-1 Pre-Pro al for about 1200-1300 shipped to Canada. Free shipping if you're in the US.
Add 2 more speakers and you'll have an awesome 7.1 system.
