IMHO I think that Conrad Johnson tube amplification goes great with the Cremonas. I use a CJ Art 2 preamp with a CJ Premier 140. Beautiful clear midrange, and lots of detail and different timbres. Very transparent, your source material needs to be of high sonic quality, or it will be ruthlessly exposed.
I had Pass X-350 on them before. Cremona is a litte dry on top, so is Pass. I will recommend something more liquid and airy on top, high power tube will be my recommendation.
I am using BAT VK-75SE with Amati, soon will get another pair of Cremona to play with. BAT is slightly under power for my Cremona Auditor in my 18x14 room, but sound is pristine.
I am Former Vice President of THIEL Audio, and former President Emeritus of Von Schweikert Audio, and very familiar with the speakers. I tried to privately email you to discuss this, but was unsuccessful.
If you would like well thought out response I am happy to give counsel.
