Next choice in amps

Hello, I currently am running a pair of Infinity Kappa 9s with 2 Tfm-25 in bi amp mode. One of the amps has been rebuilt by Rolland and the whole system sounds great. I was wondering if I was to move up to a different amp which one would It be. I was thinking maybe a pair of Silver 9t, bi amp a pair of tfm-45 or 55s or maybe Sunfire. I am not planning on doing anything soon maybe in the next 2 years or so. I am using a really small parasound pre amp that sounds great but the choices I was considering for pre amps was the Sunfire tube pre, Mcintosh c-15 or a Vincent hybrid tube. I really like the sonic signature of the tfm-25s. I tried hooking my A500x to the 9s and didn't like the way they sounded on them. Those are connected to my Infinity 8.1s which are completely different and sound nice on those. I have read threads in different forums that use all of these amps. Any suggestions are appreciated. A couple pics.

I never had any complaints running 9T's with big Martin Logan's. Those are also pretty demanding.

Love the round metered Carvers! Thanks for the photo's!
