Currently it's as if you have some Formula 1 wheels for the race track, but you have them on a Nissan Sentra.
You don't necessarily need more power (at moderate listening levels, we only need about 4 watts/channel for most modern 4 Ohm speakers of a reasonable (upwards of 85 db sensitivity).
Wattage ratings for amplifiers will tell about as much about it's ability to compliment any pair of speakers as the name of a dog will tell you about it's ability to catch a frisbee.
A good integrated like a Naim Nait XS would allow your speakers do wonderful things. Your Yamaha receiver has lots of features, but it's use as a pre-amp is limited to being very basic.
You can get a Naim Nait XS on the used market (they are usually in great shape) for about $1200. Your speakers will love you for it, and you will love the Naim.
