I have the 1.6,s. If I were you I'd try and get my hands on something with similar power before you commit. Contrary to the other posts I have not found anything under 100 watts that is even close to being powerful enough. My room is about the same size as yours. I'd love to have a low power tube amp but even the ones with 100 watts start to compress and harden a little above normal volume. I guess if you never listen above 80 db's you might be O.K.. The bass performace goes way up as power goes up. I've tried about 12 different amps. They just plain sound better with more juice. I just tried the Quicksilver 135's, very nice match with the best midrange I've had, and just enough juice for me.
