McIntosh XR5 speakers: What do I need to drive them?

McIntosh Audio | Audiokarma Home Audio Stereo Discussion Forums - audiokarma.org
I just found a pair of McIntosh XR5 speakers for $60 and had them refoamed. Curious to hear peoples impressions of these. They seems to have very nice, semi forward midrange and lots of detail with treble that can be a touch shrill but is also very realistic to my ears.

What do I need to drive these effectively? I have a HK730 40wpc, Yamaha CA-1010 100wpc (but no warmth or coloration to keep the treble in check, so not the best sonic pairing), and a Sony STR-6046a 20wpc.

SUB-question? Does using big lugs like these on a older, unserviced receiver stress it if the wpc is rated to low or even if it is in range but getting out of spec?

Thanks!
