I liked the Bel Canto REF1000s when I was driving Revel F50s. The Revels come alive with power.

What preamp will you be using? I suggest getting both from the same manufacturer.
I'm a fan of watts so buy as many as you can afford. I assume you mean the Halo A21 (2-channel). I believe the amps you mention will sound more alike than different, so I'd look at support for balanced inputs, build and warranty.
An audio buddy has a Krell KAV2250 that he'd like to sell; he's using Halo JC-1s now. Let me know if you're interested.
As a less expensive option look at the ATI AT2002 or AT3002 (stereo) or AT2004 or AT3004 (biamping).
