I'm not familiar with the Aerial LR5's, what do they sound like?
Take a look at the Gemstone Blue Diamond 200x7 for about $2800. This is a fast neutral amp with not the greatest noise floor. These can affect the system synergies. May make your system a bit too detailed. Which then leads to the flavor preference... detailed or "tubey"?
The Aerials are very open, very detailed with incredible mids and highs. I would classify them as very dynamic with an overall neutral sound. Imaging is open and the sound stage is large. Overall i think the Aerials are an outstanding speaker system. The bass is very tight but not so deep. I use a Velodyne spl 12 as a enhancement to the low end. But I will say that in 2 channel I don't the sub woofer, but i do use it in home theater applications.
