Adding a power amplifier to my system and have a few questions.

jomat77 Posts: 11
I am searching for a decent power amp for my system. I have the following components:
Polk LSi15's and an LSiC
Polk DSW Pro 400 Sub
HK AVR 7300

I definitely plan on adding a pair of LSi7's to use as rears and potentially LSiF/X's if I can find a good deal.

My question is this...
When I finally get an amp, do I need any other components for this system? Like a pre-amp or anything else? Or will it depend on the type of amp I get? I am searching for a 5-7 channel amp with a min of 125 wpc @ 4 ohms.
If anyone has one for sale, I am looking to buy immediately and looking to spend under $500. Also looking for advice on the best one to pick up. Thank you in advance for the help.
