I have the Yamaha RX-V557 (90 watts per channel) and it powers the M22's great. I even think the RX-V557 would have no trouble powering the M60's at reasonable levels. I can BLAST my M22's, no distortion. An RX-V1600 or 1500/1400 will power it well.

I really like the Yamaha line of receivers

I've got the Yamaha RXV657 and love it. It does fine with the 60s @ 90wpc. Personally I would like more headroom but my ears keep asking me "why"??

Is it just me, or does anyone else notice when newbies ask a question, but then seem to disapear into the twilight zone?

As a newbie I may disappear, but not before deciding on speakers to go with the Denon 3805 I just purchased last evening!

I think it's to be expected, Randy. Most who come here are just looking for a little info to help them make a decision. Once that decision is made, there are only a few who are as addicted to this hobby and the internet as we, and who can stomach the cadre of miscreants who populate this place, seeing past our warts and moles, and perceiving the sweet, wonderful gems we are beneath the harsh and forbidding exteriors.

I upgraded?? to a Denon about a year ago. I find that for some reason I miss my ex-Yamaha.

Congrats on your purchase. I use my 3805as a pre/pro to drive M80s. I started with M60s and was very pleased. I bought the 80s because I could. The 3805 will drive both speakers without amps.

For what it is worth, I have been using the 3805 as a pre/pro with my M60s for about 6 months. I have been very happy with the combination. Outside of the manual, I don't have any complaints with the 3805.
