Aerial 10T’s and my power amp... need help.

I have a deal in the works for a pair of 10T’s mk2. I am looking to buy my life speakers and these seem to be what I am looking for as I am not happy AT ALL with my Martin Logan’s.

Now, here is why I am here and seeking the wisdom of the Audiogon experts.

I have a C-41 pre and a MC-7100 poweramp.

My 2 channel room is small and a tad odd.

Will my 7100 be friends with these speakers? I do love the sound of the Mac setup. At this moment I cant afford to replace the 10t’s and the amp. The deal on the Aerial’s is really hard to pass up. I am a musician and want the punch and snap of cone speakers again. The ML’s just leave me flat and are a Bi*ch to position properly. Add to that, I’m a tweeker and cant seem to find the sweet spot for the Logan’s... two days in a row. Lol

I can down the road buy more power.

Now another odd question as I have the benefit of having a dear friend in the music gear industry and is willing to get me a Crown amp for the time being as they have great power and wont break the bank and I can use the amp with my p.a. When I replace it. XLS series with 350 watts per. I also have a line on a Crown K-1. Opinions on this?

Thanks everybody... I really need and appreciate all of your wisdom and advice...

Your McIntosh equipment is fine for the Ariel 10T speakers. Don’t waste your money on the Crown amp. while it may have a lot of power, it isn’t clean power.  It was designed as a pro sound amp.  If they were that good, everyone would be using and raving about it.
