Then get that, no point in listening to mp3, limited your self to youtube quality (192kbps)

If you do that just buy any amp that has enough power and isn't to cheap
All my music two thousand songs is already mp3 that is my problem
I bought the Yamaha rs 202 $169 bucks didn't have real 100watt power
Maybe the Yamaha AS-801 is more powerful

Why do you think you need a 100 watt per channel amplifier, the jbl's are a pretty easy load at 91db, anything from 25 Watts and above would suffice I'd think.

I tried the entry level Yamaha 100 watt 2 ch RS 202 it didnt have enough power
Definitely want little more power than that
So you think the Audio Lab will Work? (50 watt ch better Dac) BUY from Crutchfield
How about the Iota vx sae Stack?? (100 watt ch) have to order over seas no sure about that

I'd be very sceptical about the power ratings from the Yamaha, I've powered 87db stand mount pmc's with a 60 watt Naim amp....plenty of power....you just need to watch what you buy...Amplifier with a half decent power supply is the key, the Audiolab would be head and shoulders above that entry level Yamaha, no doubt about it and it'll drive your speakers without any fuss. You need to keep your expectations real though, The Audiolab will perform better with a level or two above your jbl's.
Just looking at the pictures of your speakers.... They're way to close together if that's how you listen to them and probably to close to the wall, I reckon amplifier power is the least of your problems in this room.

Yamaha R-S202D MKII Max effect (8 ohms, 1 kHz, 10% THD): 100 W + 100 W

What do you expect ?

Look at the back I would never in 2021 buy an amp with spring terminal, thats so cheap

Thanks skinnypuppy71! I will work on my room spacing.
Sounds like the Audiolab will work fine for me!!
When you say the Audiolab will preform better with a level or two above my JBL'S you mean better speakers down the road...

Depends on your budget

Not shure if you like there sound but Denon PMA-1315 and PMA-1560 are power full and very power full

Not cheap but a Nad C375bee should do it if you like the sound of the amp

Yes, better speakers further down the road, but hey you maybe love your jbl's, and that's fine, but whenever you're ready just make sure and take the time to demo speakers with whatever amplifier you get and preferably a home dem in that room.lol
 
Look for a good condition used Rotel RA-1060 integrated and you should be onto.a good setup.
60wpc but excellent power delivery, it will have no trouble driving those speakers or anything else you might attaching the future

Thanks for the suggestion!
I lost my patience and just decided to order the audiolab600a. I missed the sale price on Crutchfield by one day 😪 so I ordered off Amazon from Turntable lab. I was also looking on Ebay High Fi Heaven store.
I'm not sure the best place to buy USED Hi-fi?
Any suggestions on best place to buy USED good condition will help moving forward...
Thanks
