I have two friends with Salon2's and they both have Pass X350.8 amps. Incredible pairing and they are using ARC Ref 6 preamps. You really need some power to help the Salon2's to open up.

Many thanks for the input.
It's a fairly large space.......hexagonal with 18' long walls so I'm reading that you all think a 350 would be a better choice.
I would like monos but it's not really practical in my situation.
Is there a lot of difference between the .5 and .8 series?
Probably going to buy used or demos.
I just had a really nice and educational chat with Mark@Reno HiFi. And his recommendation was for a X250.8. He thinks it is more than powerful enough for my Revels and would match my taste in music better than the 350.8. He has a pair too so I guess he knows what gets them going! Looks like I have my next amp picked out :-)
Thanks again for all the advise guys!
