no, amp is working fine
Well then if yer sure ..Your Speakers are Nowhere Near the 98 db Even simple math suggests that.
Few of us actually listen at more than 1 or 3 Watts. All bleats aside.
More Power ?? Dunno..I once tried 200 watters in my 95 db Drivers.. just to follow the Folklore answer the question for myself re;
Mo' Power = Gooder.
Not the case for me . I'm thinking that High power amps that genuinely deliver Similar exquisite sounds to a Pure Class A amp.. are in the 6 figure price range.
I'd be looking at Better Drivers ....First.

The point is not that "Mo Power" is always "Gooder". It's a matter of getting over that hump of having truly sufficient power. In my case, with my Tannoys (91dB 6 Ohm) 10wpc - 50wpc does indeed work. But closer to 100wpc really makes them sing. Your setup and requirements do not necessarily match everyone else. And the OP has already alluded to his present amp possibly being under powered. "I do think I run out of steam sometimes."
"I'm thinking that High power amps that genuinely deliver Similar exquisite sounds to a Pure Class A amp.. are in the 6 figure price range."
Another false generalization. Class A amps in and of themselves do not all sound the same. In fact Class A operation does not guarantee exquisite sound. I've owned a number of traditional Class AB amps that sound better than some Class A amps.... and they were no where near the six figure price range.
Lateral move at best as long you're satisfied with the power.
