I've got the 936's powered with my own build of a Pass F5. Excellent combo. I think solid state is the way to go with these. No real suggestion as I'm now a shill for class A power.

I've got the PM Dialogue premium, used for 2k.
It's wonderful with the Focal 1008be2's
I had a Cronus Magnum but there is more air and I think a deeper soundstage. Besides you can switch from ul to triode from the comfort of your chair. Need a phono pre of course, but you can get a killer phono pre with the extra money.
@larseand are there any PM dealers in your area? Maybe you could ask them for a demo. As someone mentioned in another thread, your minimum ohm is 2.5 and might need the extra umph of the HP.
There’s only one way to tell.
I find in my 12X16x9’ room I can’t get past 12’oclock on the volume control, unless it’s a really low volume cd.
Where are you located?
@larseand What amp did you end up with?
I recently got the 948s and initially setup with my Peachtree Nova 150. The sound was lacking something. Long story short, the sound was enhanced when I upgraded to the Nova 300. It not only provided a boost of power but it also improved the nuance of the soundstage.
