Nightsky,

Be careful when comparing different companies specs, it is usually apples and oranges.  

What speakers do you have now?

Lin, the speakers I have with 90 dB sensitivity and nominal impedance of 6 ohms are Tannoy Proto-Js, an inexpensive near field monitor. I would be willing to buy new speakers, but there don't seem to be many options for a SET amp like the Super Zen until you get up to $1000/pr or more, which is beyond my budget right now. There's the Klipsch Reference RB-61 II with 95 dB sensitivity available online for $400/pr, but I don't know of any other options in that price range.
I have a small room and almost always listen at low to moderate volume levels, so speakers with 90-93 dB sensitivity might work for me. My typical listening volume is only about 65 dB as measured by a RadioShack Sound Level Meter.

Any of the Super 3 models and Super 5 (same driver, bigger cabinet) will work since you have a subwoofer.
There is a pair of Super 5 Monitors on AGon for $675 shipped.

Thanks Lin and everyone ... one more question please (and sorry if this is a dumb one Cheesy).  So assuming I do this ... both the speakers and sub are running at full bandwidth, or should the sub still be set to a certain point, etc.?

The powered sub? will have a crossover built in, set it at the lowest frequency that blends well with your main speakers.
