Yamaha A-S2100. It will pair very well these speakers and power all of them with ease. Solid state bass and dynamics with tube-like bloom.

@helomech Yamaha definitely has its following. Have you heard Rotel RA-1570 or older Rotel RX-1052? Both sounded great with B&W 704s that are laying around, but made the MA Gold 200s sound too clinical.
Perhaps overgeneralizing but the somewhat similar genealogy with Yamaha makes me wonder...and speaking of Japan, ATC19s are also a tempting offering.
I don't believe Rotel has similar genealogy to Yamaha. I've heard some Rotel amps, (can't remember the exact model) and they didn't sound like Yamahas. The Yammies have a somewhat unique way of being very clear and dynamic without being clinical or fatiguing.
I'd personally stay away from Ribbon and AMT tweeters with a "glassy" room. Might be best to stick with tubes considering your other gear is somewhat forward and bright IMO.
