I would start matching with an amp before worrying about a pre initially. I have an Ayre V-3 hooked to my Maggie 2.7QR's. I have listened to the Bryston and Mark Levinson amps connected to them. The Bryston is bright with good punch to it (better for rock music). The Mark Levinson was way too much money but the Ayre sounded to me better than the Mark Levinson with these speakers. The sound is very detailed with no harshness what so ever and the Ayre brought out more bass than expected and a little tighter. Hope you have a chance to audition this combination.
