Parasound JC 1 monoblocks with Ayre KX-5 Twenty preamp?

I've been using an Ayre KX-5 Twenty preamp with a VX-5 Twenty stereo amp to drive KEF Reference 1s (Blade 2s may be in the future), but I have three unused JC 1 monoblocks. I'm wondering about replacing the Ayre amp with a pair of the JC 1s.  The JC 1s brought life and great LF extension to the KEF Reference 107/2s I used before the Reference 1s.  But not sure how the Ayre preamp and JC 1s would play together.  Advice sought, before I unpack and move those heavy amps upstairs.

Having heard both at the same dealer, Ayre all the way.

However, pick what you like. :)
