4 basic questions

I am not yet new to hi-fi. I chose a set of 2 Unison Research equipment (tube integrated amp S6 -35 Wpc- and a CD player Unico) to match to a pair of Sonus Faber Domus Grand Piano speakers(max power of 200 Wpc). I bought the speakers and brought them home to Colombia. When I tried to buy the integrated amp and the cd player in Chile I found out that they cannot get them for 120 volts but for 220 v.
Now I have 5 questions:
1. Is the Unison Research tube integrated amp S6 at 35 Wpc a good match for my speakers (whose manufacturer recommends a range of 30-200 Wpc)?
2. If so, can anybody recommend me where to buy the Unison Research in the US different than EpitomeAV that has been impossible to reach and get a quote from them?
3. Is it a good match musically speaking -I have heard that the Italian speakers would benefit of a stronger bass by, say, an American tube amps manufacturer such as VTL?
4. Would you recommend matching other equipment better to my already-purchased speakers?
This is my first internet forum ever. Hope this kind of questions are ok here.
Thanks beforehand.

Hi, Alfredo, welcome!

1) It could be a fine match, depending on the type of music and volume you prefer. When you made your choice, had you listened to this combination?

2) If you cannot even get a company to offer you a price or help with a purchase, then you should also worry about what would happen if you ever need service or warranty work.

Sound Advisors in Chile are listed at the Unison website as distributors for your country. have you tried them?

I will leave the other answers to the other members.
