RE: output matching

Well, yes, less efficient speakers might help-
you have created the perfect storm- in that you are using very efficient speakers, so you do not need much gain to drive them to pleasant levels-
and yes, the Sansui has a very low input sensitivity -

You have a couple of choices-
You can live with letting the amp loaf along and enjoy unparalleled headroom (because you are not taxing the amp)
Or you can add some resistors to reduce the output of the CDP and go to town-

I would leave it, and not crank up the Volume pot-

Happy Listening
