Last week my mother let me know her old 6 Channel receiver must have died. She owns a pair of Schneider speakers that he has much longer than I am alive (I am 23), rated at 70W /8 Ohm each, but we both seem to struggle finding an Audio receiver that is of high quality and can handle those speakers fine? She usually tries filling a rather large room, so when reading up she should invest in 140W-200W per channel? And can newer systems made for surround sound give a signal to older Stereo speakers at all? Maybe someone with a little more experience in buying audiophile great systems has a recommendation what to go for? I don't mind a used alternative if they are available either as long as they have a good reputation for longevity. An added plus is a receiver with a very minimalistic front panel, avoiding a million buttons and looking more in line with something Apple would build (though in Black and not Aluminium) rather than the ones you see often with more buttons than sand in the sahara.
