So your saying that more dynamic sound means no instantaneous clipping? In essence a high powered amp would sound better?
"Sounds better" is subjective but so far as producing what's in a recording with 30dB peak to average level, yes that's it.
You can hear prolonged clipping and it sounds bad, but instantaneous clipping you cannot hear as a flaw, only a difference in dynamics comparing with and without.
The final arbiter of it is examining the amplifier output voltage, any clipping at any stage of the electronics chain shows up there.
That being said, is there some sort of a table for a good match between power and Effeciency? Something like cartridge and tone arm mass matching? If you know what I'm saying.
