In Reply to: Merlin VSM and minimum wattage??? posted by rhyno on January 11, 2001 at 13:46:35:
Just for kicks, I hooked up 8-watt Welborne Laurel 300B SET monoblocs to my VSM Milleniums last night and was blown away. At moderate to loud listening levels on acoustic jazz in a 20' x 30' room with cathedral ceiling, the speakers sang! Well, "blown away" is an overstatement because loud and dense passages got a bit confused, so I'm not really recommending that 8 watts are all you need. My point is that Merlins really do not require lots of juice, and 25-50 watts should be plenty for any application.
