I recommend you listen to the speakers yourself before you buy them. Doing otherwise would be foolish.

Sure, I’ve listen and test the speaker (Idea) in a Audio system Shop, I like it very much, but they use different amp and CDP (Audio Flight 1 CDP, JR Amp). It is not possible for all of me to bring all my gears to test that speaker, that’s why I ask if anybody have experience to use EC amp + Avalon speaker.
I auditioned my Ascendant's with a Pass XA30.5 and ended up purchasing both. Late last year I auditioned the XA60.5's from Pass and ended up trading in the XA30.5.
Music played below ~90db at listening position the amps were about equal, but beyond that I heard a clear improvement with the XA60.5's. Both setups are less power than what you are planning, so you should be fine there.
Recently traded in the Ascendant's for Eidolon's and so far the Pass XA60.5's are not showing any weakness.
