When all else fails, read the directions packed with your speakers.

They are 87dB efficient. So they need an amp that can put out 25-140 watts per channel RMS from 20-20,000 Hz into 8 ohms at less than 0.1% distortion.

When I used mine as desktop speakers, a 6-watt T-amp worked fine volume-wise (although I didn't like having them two feet away. Of course, they were not designed to be listened to from 2 feet away).

The speakers clams to be able to handle 120 watts each MAX. So you would want a receiver that also puts out 120 watts per channel or per speakers. Sometimes it says max and sometimes it will say RMS. 60 watts RMS would be a perfect match. If you go with lower wattage you have more of a chance of blowing the speakers as you will want to make it louder and you will then cause distortion and that will blow the speakers. Better to have more power and not have the need to have the amp/receiver go into clipping and or distorting by turning it up.
