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.

There is nothing like Ayre's zero feedback and fully balanced designs.
And, I think you have one fine system, as it stands.

The only way to know is to try, but if moving those amps upstairs will be too much work, I would leave things as they are.
Bob, after rereading reviews of the Ayre KX-5 Twenty and VX-5 Twenty, I think the advice in your first paragraph is what I needed, and that I should leave well enough alone -- now what about substituting Wilson Sophias for the KEF Reference 1s?  Oh, but that's not so easy to do given I don't have the Sophias, only a six LS50s and four mid-80s KEF Reference 102s.

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

However, pick what you like. :)
