Relevant parameters include how far you sit from the speakers in your preferred listening position, and what average and peak SPLs you listen at.
With 89 dB/W sensitivity and rated for "4, 6, or 8" ohm speakers, your Aeon's aren't particularly tough loads.
60 wpc isn't a lot of power. Your speakers can handle much more power if it is required by your listening preferences.
If you don't have a SPL meter with a peak hold facility - they are easy enough to obtain, for example:
Just put it where you sit and punch a few buttons, listen to some music as loud as you like, and read the digits and post them...
