Amplifier Recommendations for Focal 905

Just purchased a pair of Focal Aria 905 as I am putting together a new system for family room. Looking at options for purchasing an integrated amplifier which would match well with the Focal 905. I am considering the following amps.
Yamaha A-S501 85 W
Cambridge CXA 60 60 W
Marantz PM 6005 45 W

Any big differences in sound with any of these amps matched with the Focal 905. I have read that the Marantz provide a more warm sound and the Yamaha more neutral with the Cambridge being a bit more bright. Will the Marantz eventhough rated at only 45 W be a good match for the Focal 905. Have heard great thing s regarding this amp. Cambridge from what i have read would be a great option as well but would have to purchase a phono preamp as well. Any input would be appreciated. System will include a restored Technics 1700mk2 TT.
