Balanced Audio Technologies VK-500. A 103 pounds of innovative tech, watts and current to spare, with over 400 wpc into 4 ohms, and I believe it has almost 600 wpc into a 2 ohm load. And yet, it has the midrange sound of the best tube amp but the bass of the huge solid state amp that it is, a great amp. Difficult to find a used one but if you can, get it. There is nothing it cannot drive and it sounds marvelous doing doing so. Basically, it is two monoblocks in a single chassis and it even requires two power cords.

Thank you for all the responses. The 1.7i worked magically with a Parasound 2.1 hint.
I have since moved to 3.7 i Maggie speakers and up to a Pass 250.8 with XP 10 pre, so far this is an extremely pleasing combo.

Maggies love unlimited power. The Newclear NC1000L Dual Mono Power amp in combination with a tube preamp will make them sing. 500W on 8 ohm per CH, 1000W on 4 ohm per CH. Read the reviews, a lot of them mention to drive Maggies with this Power amp. Cheers and enjoy the music.

When I had 1.7s I used and Anthem 225i. It grabbed hold of them and never let go. Tons of power and current.
