I use a CJ 350; the L5s are a reasonably difficult load. The CJ gets quite hot after a long listening session but has no trouble driving them as loud as I want. The CJ gets barely warm driving my Spendor S100s to the same volume. My Meridian 605s shut down after a little while on the L5s, they had no trouble with my Apogee Duetta Signatures. Gamut's own power amp should also work well but I haven't used one myself. A Krell 302 or 402 should also work very well. In a more reasonable price bracket there is a Marantz S11 power amp on here for $2195 and a Pass X150 for $1895. It is my opinion that these would work but have not tried them. I use Cardas GR speaker cable with Antipodes jumper and Audia Flight line stage.I found running the cables to the treble posts worked better in my system. Email me if you like.
