What Power Amp for new monitors?

Member for

I just purchased a pair of Paradigm Mini Monitors on eBay to be used as my main nearfields for mixing and tracking. I have been looking for some new nearfields and after comparing these to my "really" cheap JBL's they were the way to go. Now I will be able to hear the bass content of my mixes, not just hope that it's there.

My questions is what power amp would you recommend for this pair of speakers? I am not a professional and I'm going to be living in a dorm room in 6 weeks, so I need something practical as well as funtional. A few steps above my Yamaha tuner/amplifier, yet below the very high-wattage pro models. Any suggestions? Any ideas are welcome, even DIY.

Thanks,
Ian
