    The 750SE is a good amp - but with 5ch driven loses a lot of power (50w p/c) and might have some issues driving the mordaunt short speakers as they're almost all 90db sesitivity (or lower - depends on the model).

    The CA 540r should keep the output to 80w with all ch driven - that's way more acceptable if you're ready to loose the 40 or so DSP modes the Yamaha have - I would not use them but that's just me!

    I cannot stress enogh that this is just my opinion, as a lot of ppl seem to forget checking what's the output with all ch driven on AV amps!
