I posted this on the Definitive Owners Thread and was advised to try a post in AMP receiver area.

Since I can purchase these units within 50 miles of my location I was looking for suggestions from the Def Tech BP knowledgeable users on the forum on how these receivers would stack up with the BP8040 speaker system as far as sound, warm, bright neutral comparison.

I believe you have not gotten a response because no one on here has experience with all the receivers you listed. Maybe you could ask this question on the receiver thread as far as the sound characteristics of the various manufacturers. I used to drive my dt's with a yamaha receiver and they sounded good together. I would say it was slightly on the bright side
