    I have a big midi system at home but i dont really like the main unit, i dont think its good enough for the speakers. Also it has a digital volume control and i dont like that.

    So any tips when looking for an amp/receiver?

    The speakers have an impedance of 6ohms. They are pretty big speakers

    Well typically you want a unit that has a multitude of inputs and outputs. If you are into home theater, you will want one with BOTH coaxial digital and Optical digital audio inputs and perhaps outputs. Typically spending more money will also get you more power output from the amplifier section as well. But remember that doubling the power output only gives you at best 3 decibel more output. At any rate, if you are concerned at how much power the amplifier puts out, you should be looking at a bigger amp anyways ;)

    Are you only using a pair of stereo speakers? If so, that makes your decision a lot easier. What type of outputs does the midi unit have? It has unbalanced rca's right?
