I am currently running PSB Image T6s, an Image C5, and B6s for rears along with a Klipsch sub.  Current receiver is an older Pioneer VSX-1018.  It sounds decent in stereo mode but just isnt getting it done for movies.  I think I need something more powerful.  I have been looking at the Denon 3300 and Marantz SR5011.  Would either be a good match?  Any other recommendations?

Either would be a good match, however, the X3300W is a higher level more in line with its sister model SR6011 as they both feature the much better Audyssey MultEQ XT32 as well as Sub EQ HT (dual Sub level/delay) over just MultEQ XT on the SR5011 and its sister model X2300W.

                        Is the Denon 3300 overkill for my setup?  Would the 2300 be a better option?

Not really, although depends on the features/inputs/outputs you require of your setup.   If you want more power, you'll need to add an external amp with at least 200W+.  The X3300W is the lowest Denon model with a 7.1 main zone pre-outs while the SR5011 is the lowest Marantz model with 7.1 main zone pre-outs.

                        Thanks. I think the 3300 should be plenty of piwer.  I read a review on AVforum and it said the 3300 drove their $17k setup just fine.
