First of all, a hearty welcome to AA!

Vivid Audio speakers sound good with all good amplifiers.
Mind you, they are very revealing, so they will show the differences between various amps, and their shortcomings.

I heard Vivid Audio with D'Agostino, Classé, Mola Mola, Ayre,...
In my own system, I went from Burmester to my current amps (Halgorythme 48W class A tube amps). Couldn't be happier.

Wow. G2. noice.

There are things you can do to refine your CJ amps. I have a mile of Nordost on mine and feet as well. Every little thing you do will be rewarded as previously mentioned.

Vivid speakers are more tube amp friendly than most speakers, thanks to a minimum impedance of 4 ohms. If you love tube amps, then Vivid is your speaker.

I'm using D'Agostino MAS Momentum Stereo. Excellent match with G2.
I've also tried Gamut D200i and BAT Vk75 in my system. The last one not a good match.

At my dealer I've heard G3, K1 and V1.5 with several amps, like ARC ref 75SE, ARC GSI75, Devialet 120, 250 (SAM), Parasound Halo int, Pure Audio Ref, Jeff Rowland Continuum. In general all very good matches, so it seems Vivid speakers works very well with a wide range of amplifiers.

That is exactly my experience.
But take care of the upstream electronics and beware of dodgy recordings , the Vivids will sound horrible when the source is horrible!
