Default X150.5 for Sonus Faber Grand Piano Home?

Hi,

Looking to add a power amp to my system to drive my Sonus Faber Grand Piano Home.

Pre will be using the pre-out of my Plinius 8100 int amp. A dedicated pre will be next in the shopping list...

Music genre:mostly jazz, vocal

Do you think the X150.5 will be a good match with my speakers?

Thanks

Yes, We Have No Bananas...

But this is a perfect opportunity to make a DIY-adapter, then the amp will connect to anything.

And perhaps we should answer the original question...

If I got it right by searching, the speakers are electrically:
Sensitivity: 90dB/2.83V at 1 meter
Nominal Impedance: 6 ohms

This won't be a problem for the X150.5 to drive them.
When it comes to sound, me personally believe it can't go wrong with a Pass amplifier.

An interesting thing is that it has 30 dB gain. For me it is sometimes a problem to play music quietly.
