NAD C316BEE v2 driving Epos Epic 5. Enough power?

I wanted to pick your collective brains.

I have a NAD C316BEE v2 Integrated Amplifier, which I originally bought to use with a pair of small Argon bookshelf speakers.

However, a pair of Epos Epic 5 speakers recently entered my life. I love them! Powered by the NAD, they sound gorgeous.

I'm just worried that the amp might be underpowered, and this may damage the speakers? (as I've read is a thing) Am I worrying for no reason? It certainly seems to work just fine.
