I used a Joldia 102B with the Europas some years ago. I remember it having easily enough power and sounding quite nice. I later moved on to the Callistos and Eos Hx powered by HK Cit II for even better sound.

excellent choice for your speaker! :-) I’m a big fan of Green Mtn Audio’s time-coherent speakers. Used to own the C1.5i floor stander before i moved to ribbon speakers.
The Europa is an easy load so you could get some fine sounds from even vintage amps (just like crgolfer wrote in his post).
I used to have the Jolida 502A 60W/ch - very nice sounding integrated amp esp. with the KT88 tubes i had in them.
Heard good things about the Rogue Sphinx & NAD 375 BEE but I've not heard them myself.
I have the original Redgum RGi120, have had it for five years. It's excellent amp, not cold slightly on the warm side for a transistor amp. Excellent dynamics, bass and speaker control. Feels powerful.
There is one from Canada here on Audiogon. Offer them $750-$800, and it will probably be yours. I am not sure there are dealers or even an distributor in the US.
