the record spot
My old Sansui AU-217 was a 30w amp and went with the Mission 752s I had comfortably; I played the music at sensible levels and only when I really turned it up, did the music distort and clip. Prior to that, it sounded comparable with more powerful amps I've had, including the current 100wpc Onkyo. We played a wide range of music through that setup too; rock, orchestral, etc.steve_1979 said:A 30 watt amp with 90dB speakers is barely capable of playing dynamic music at a sensible volume without clipping.John Duncan said:You've heard it distort then?
A 10 watt amp with 86dB speakers is going to clip unless it has somehow managed to alter the laws of physics.
