i tested out a pair of Mini Maggies today and, my god, they were marvelous. best speakers i've ever heard. so i've decided to get a pair, but my question is, what amplifier should i go with for them? the guy at the audio store noted that they need a LOT of power (they were driving it with a ~80wpc dac/amp, and said that that was probably the minimum for how much power they'd need), and i'm not really familiar with the speaker amp game.
my price range is between $1000 and $2500 for the amp, i'd love some help on this. i'm not very knowledgeable on the subject.
