No clue about SU and D18 -- but I did listen to a SN2 driving D20. Not quite your combo, but pretty close. I liked it -- but does this help you? Are you familiar with ProAc speakers? Speakers are quite a personal choice, as many discussions in this place suggest...

I am no expert, to be honest -- but ProAc doesn't have the reputation of building speakers that are difficult to drive. I would rather worry whether the speakers work in your room. Presumably you would buy second-hand. If the price is good, you might be able to re-sell with little or no loss. In recent months, ProAc's Tablette 10 has received much praise in the Forum -- apparently very easy to drive and not fuzzy about placement. I don't know the new Tablette (BBC monitor design) but listened to the Anniversary Tablette -- and thought it was a fine speaker though I preferred Neat's SX3 in an A/B comparison. In the  end I went into a totally different direction and bought PMC's 25.23....

Looking at the specs of the SU (80w) and D18 (20w to 180w), on paper it appears that the two would work together. I ran a XS 2 (70w) with a pair of D2's (spec stated amp between 30 -150w) and enjoyed the pairing. 

I had the opportunity to do a home demo with the D2's with the XS 2, hopefully you can arrange the same with the SU & D18's. Everyone's room accommodations are different as well as our own hearing, one person's pleasure is another person's poison.

Good luck......
