Receivers are not supposed to color the sound. If there is a difference, it would be very slight. I wouldn't worry about it because it's going to be impossible to predict speaker/amp synergy like that, and how your room affects the sound will have a much greater impact. So anyone else's experience will probably not predict yours.
Plus, to me, the S30s are a touch warm sounding. I think they will sound warm with whatever you run them with.
