you'll get descent volume but not full range.

I had the Kestral IIs. I tried my Cary CAD 300 SEI & my Pass Aleph 30 on them. The Pass Aleph sounded better.
I recently purchased a pair of Sonus Faber Concerto Domus floorstanders. They have the same Vifa ringtweeter as the Kestral II. I'm going to pair them with a Pass XA30.5 amp.
Hopefully, they will sound as good or better than the Kestral/Aleph combo.
I am currently using Meadowlark Kestrel 2's and I really think they are nice speakers. I bought a (Rawson clone) First Watt F3 (15W)on A'gon to see how they would do. It was enough power with my phonostage but I felt the amp struggled a little when using just the preamp. My room is 15'x18'x8' and I listen at btwn 65 and 75db. Hope this helps. Enjoy the music.
