Your speakers appear to present a fairly easy load for an amp (88dB and 8 Ohms) so I don't foresee any problems unless you need unusually high volumes. (Although that holds true for any amp of similar power and not just the Melody Media.)

I would take Marantz' quoted output of 60wpc with a tiny pinch of salt. 45 - 50wpc would be more realistic,  but with your - fairly - high efficiency speakers you should be fine.
