Amp recommendation to drive Thiel 3.6 speakers
I’ll bet The Crown Drive Corps would do the job.  440 @ 8 ohm 770  @4 ohm, 1200 @ 2 ohm.  Without  breaking a sweat.    
Rogue Metis vs. Emotiva USP-1
Most negativity about the Emotiva preamp will disappear if you switch from the preamp outs that go to satellite and subwoofer, to the full range outs. I found the hi pass outs glaring; but the full range outs are mellow and fine on my Martin Logan...

extremely happy. My Vistas had too much bass. Just cut them with the high pass, and sent all the low end to my subwoofer (Depth), PERFECT. Tube-like, but crystalline highs. Built like brick ship-house. 
Magnepan 1.7
I heard them today and thought they had NO BASS at all. WONDERFUL VOICES IN THE CENTER John and Paul sounded live, but they were sterile and nothing below 60 hz.
