I am using Theta Prometheus mono-blocks with my 3. The Prometheus was considered an "A" list amp in the Stereophile yearly listing. Fully balanced.

I just bought my first ARC (Ref 3 pre). It is still on its way here. I will be pairing it with Parasound A21.

I do not see too many individuals on this site mentioning Parasound gear. It looks like maybe this is on the low end of the spectrum of gear that most on this forum own.

Good choice of amps. I am using them also except with a Ref 5SE. It is a fantastic soundstage using them both!

I'm using my Ref3 to GamuT D200i in balance mode. It's a 200 watts into 8homs. Sounds beautifully open and detailed

What did you think? Am guessing it was a great match. Best sound I've ever heard was a BAT system driving Wilson speakers at a NYC show.
