In What HiFi November issue I read the Standmount Speaker group test ( average approx £1000- less or more) and the favourite winner (according to the article) was ATC SCM 11 speakers. The same article recommended or suggested this 'System Builder' which included Rega Elex R amplifier, Naim CD5si CD (its a fine CD heard it in a audition) and Custom Design Stands. I looked up the Rega Elex R amplifier specifications and ATC SCM 11 specifications. To my suprise the power out put for the amplifier was 72.5 watts per channel into 8 ohm and the recommended power amplifier for the speakers was 75 - 300 watts (quoted sensitivity 85d). One review of these speakers suggested that the ATC SCM11 should be powered at least by 100 watt amplifier in order to drive the speakers properly. Has What Hi Fi got it wrong in their choice of amplifier or does the Rega Elex R amplifier have 'special' watts like the Naim amplifiers, is there a secret 'transient power' that enables the amplifier to drive more difficult loads? Can someone please advise me as I am interested in the amplifier.
