B&W speakers with Marantz Model 7 amp?

Has anyone used either this amp or any other tube amp having a similar sonic signature(for example, Air Tight ATM-3s)with either B&W 802 or 803 speakers? If so, did you achieve a synergy or were you satisfied with what you heard? Thank you.
The Marantz 7 is a preamp, not a power amp. The usual mate was the 8 or 8b or a pair of 9s.

Oops, sorry for the blunder on my part. I did mean the Model 9. Thanks for the correction.
Or...good results using *any* tube amp[s] with B&W 802 or 803 ???
