The Denon UD M3 unit is a 20WPC CD/receiver. It has a built in power amplifier. At 20WPC it may be enough power for your speakers. That will depend on the size of the room, the volume level you use for listening and the speakers you use.

If you find that 20WPC isn't enough, virtually any power amplifier ever made can be connected to its preout RCA connectors. If you do determine that you want/need more power keep in mind that with power more is almost always better.
