Only tube amps use "taps". Solid state amps do not. Any well built SS amp will work well with your speakers.

Thank you all for your responses. I'll use the 4 or 6 ohm (if it has them) taps on my ancient McIntosh amp until I buy a new solid state amp.
Kijanki, I was actually thinking about a Rowland 102, but I wasn't sure that the 100W would be enough power. I've never had an amp larger than 100W, and I was thinking that with the Hyperions I might buy a Plinius 9200 integrated. I've had separates up 'til now and would like to see if there's really much sound quality lost with an integrated. The Plinius also accepts MC cartridges and supposedly has a good phono stage, both of which are important to my phono-centric system.
