I listened to the GS60's extensively a few months ago. Nice speaker - very neutral, well balanced. The dealers that had the GS60's all were driving them with anthem amps. Sounded fine - I wasn't impressed - but in a sense that is what a neutral speaker should leave one with - no coloration, just the sound. Given what I heard, the GS60 would probably work well with most amps - good quality units of course. You may want to just make your way around to listen to a lot of different amps. My impression from what I heard put parasound and anthem in the same category - solid without any coloration. Bryston seemed a little brighter to me, but the 4bsst was a very nice amp - depends a lot on your tastes. Mcintosh 402 sounded great - but has a definite sound to it - kind of the opposite of Bryston. Both Bryston and Mcintosh make nice integrated's and, depending on what how much power you need, the Bryston integrated was a nice sounding product - of course I listed to that driving a Dali Mk II model 400 - a little warmer speaker than the GS60. Really only one way to find out - see what you like - takes some leg work to find the different manuf products driving comparable speakers or if you are lucky driving the GS60's - and really depends on your tastes. I personally wasn't overly impressed with Krell or Levinson, I think the Bryston pretty much took these into account, but your tastes may be different. The amps I have mentioned, from the research I conducted, were all well thought of products. There is a considerable price range among these - but of course a lot depends on if you are going used or new. Since you are going with the speakers for music and movies, television, etc, it may not be a bad idea to stay as neutral as possible - the most neutral products that I heard were the parasound Halo and the top end Anthem.
