You should obtain good results with your Classe to a point, i.e. there will be a volume above which the sound will harden as you push the Classe above its current produsing capabilities. Depending on the size of your room, this may not be a concern. The only way to go above that volume, if you need it, will be to trade up for amore powerful amp with the Thiels, preferably an amp that doubles its output as the impedance of the speaker load is halved. This is required due to the low dips in impedance at some frequencies with the Thiels. But the 2.2s are great speakers. Levinson, Krell, Rowland are three I can think of that will supply the needed current if you need to play them louder and with less harshness and better bass than with the CA100.
