The Atma-Sphere M60 uses 8 output tubes per amp/channel---they're mono, for only 60 watts! And that's at 8ohms---it puts out even less (45w) at 4ohms. My Music Reference RM200 uses only a pair of...

Yeah, ESL's present a brutal load to an amp, ribbons sometimes even worse (especially, as you say, the big Apogee's---almost a dead short!). The old Quads included, whose impedance ranges from below...

I consider the 3.7 the best speaker value in existence. You lose a lot by spending a little less, and you have to spend a lot more to get a little better. I don't know how expensive box speakers sell...
