I see. I'm running essentially a similiar set-up only using GS60's, GSLCR center, and Energy RC-R rear's.
I think the A51 @250W per/chan is a perfect power-match with the front mains (GR60's and GS60's).
It's interesting to compare specs for both speaker models:
[A] Gold Reference: GR 60
Flagship of the range is the GR60, a no compromise full bandwidth design and engineering tour de force. Two RST® bass units and one RST® mid-range unit work into three separate cavities tuned to differential frequency points, resulting in exceptional power, linearity and grip. The GR60 brings lifelike scale, power, dynamics and realism to music and film.

[b] Gold Signature: GS 60
The elegantly proportioned GS60 embodies all the conviction and integrity of Monitor Audio design. Its thirty year heritage is eloquently expressed by a compelling unity of cutting-edge innovation and aesthetic creativity bringing life-like power, dynamics and realism to music and film. Like all models in the Gold Signature range, the flagship GS60 is a monument to the cabinet-maker’s art. Immaculate real wood or piano gloss finishes are blended with a slender, contemporary design and superb attention to detail, investing the GS60 with an air of resolute quality.
