Cool HELP W/ NEW SYSTEM.. RECEIVER VS. SEPARATE COMPONENTS

Hello to all and thanks for any responses.

Here is my dilemma.

I'd like to use CANTON REF 7DC or CANTON 890DC speakers w/ the following specs

Technical Data
Type High-End floorstanding speaker
Engineering Principle 3-way Bass reflex system
Nom. /Music power handling 170 / 340 watts
SPL (1 watt/1m) 88.5 db (1 W, 1 m)
Frequency response 22...40.000 Hz
Crossover frequency 220 / 3.000 Hz
Woofer 2 x 180 mm (7''), Aluminum (Wave surround)
Midrange 1 x 180 mm (7''), Aluminum (Wave surround)
Tweeter 1 x 25 mm (1''), aluminum-manganese
Nominal Impedance 4...8 ohms
Dimensions (WxHxD) 22.5 x 105 x 33.5 cm
(8.9'' x 41.3'' x 13.2'')
Weight 29.6 kg
Special Features DC-technology
Cabinet 21 mm MDF, 2 chamber system in sandwich design
High end cabling with Black Science
Intergrated loudspeaker base with shock absorbers
Gold plated bi-wiring/bi-amping screwclamp terminals

I'm considering going w/ the new NAD T875 receiver, which admitedly I'll mainly use for music but would like to have all of the HDMI connections, Dolby surround, and XM radio available for DVD and other entertainment. I've read the NAD are conservatively rated powerwise. Will it be powerful enough for 2.1 channel and various volume levels.

Or should I instead spend a little more say on NAD separates/Sunfire TGP-5/TGA 5200 amp set-up.

Thanks again

SK
