Amp Recommendations
Just get an Anthem P2 and be done, it will last for 20 years and power any speakers you will ever get. It is a very underrated amp that is built to last and sounds great.  
Sopra 2 Amp Recommendation

Pls help me decide Pass Labs X250.8 or Luxman M900u
Take a look at the Anthem P2 amp it will go down to 1ohm or less.
