As a former Thiel owner I would go w/the Musical Fidelity. Thiels like power and you'll get w/the MF integrated.

i haven't had thiels for some 15-20 yrs... yes they like power
i have no reason to dispute others' saying the mf has good synergy with thiels... many mf units certainly can deliver the watts and they sound good
but you won't go wrong with the hegel either... i would guess the mf units will sound a little more lively, the hegel a touch more 'sophisticated' and relaxed
