Magnepan .7 - what to power with etc.


Hello, I am planning on buying Magnepan .7 speakers.
Will the following combination work:
1. Source of music: Blue-ray player, LP player and maybe PC
2. Monarchy NM24 Tube DAC
3. Rotel RSP 1570 preamp (purchased)
4. Rotel RMB 1575 or Emotiva XPR 5 (looking for a multichannel amp to use for stereo listening as well as home theater)
5. Magnepan .7 speakers
6. Cables?
7. Type of music: mostly classical and jazz
8. No extreme volumes
so far I have only purchased the preamp and I have definitely decided on the speakers.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

I like Rotel, but I would do things a little different. I would try to find a good RMB 1090. I think it would be a much better match for the speakers. Then, for the other 3 channels, you don't have to spend a great deal of money. Emotive, would be a good choice for the center and surrounds. Parasound Z series would also be worth looking in to. The idea behind this is to get the best quality sound on your main speakers, where it really counts.
I have heard that Rotel can be bright sounding. I know that Emotiva can be bright sounding, is that a bad combination?
I had a private demo at my home with the .7 and really love them!! they sounded great on my Crown XLS 2500 power amp and a Audio-GD NFB-28 preamp/dac.

Ordered them and waiting for them to arrival :-)
The 1090 sounds different than the other models. Its a good choice if you don't want a bright sounding amp.
thank you for the advice. I appreciate you taking the time to do that.
what are the .7? are they the old mg12?
Fabulous speakers as long as you stay in the sweet spot... I had mine powered by arcam 8, adcom 5300, and finally a qsc rmx1400 power amp as I recall. They are easy to drive because of the flat impedance, but they require tons of power because of the low sensitivity. 200 watts per channel is what you need. If I had to do it again, I would start with a NAD integrated 375. That would be a good price/quality watt ratio for the Magnepan.
Classe ca151......this will bring out the best in your speakers.
