ore power is only needed if you can't get to the levels you want cleanly with your current amp. With my current setup I actually went down on power as I do not need it to hit reference levels.I'm steadily growing on this bolded part. Power power power... more power... cleaner output. I'm beginning to wonder if 125w all channels driven if that really should be like 400w each channel that the Emotiva XPR-5 can deliver.
I can literally sell my Krell and buy a new Emotiva XPR-5 for the same price. Hmm....
