Looking for a new Amp or Preamp? If you're after tubes, post over here.

Second guessing my used tube amp purchase...

I recently bought (but have not yet received) a used Raven Nighthawk MK2. The amp is rated at 20wpc, but all the reviews seem to say that it punches above its weight.

I was reading a thread about pairing "low power" tube amps with inefficient speakers, and was a little worried that the Raven would fall a bit short on power for my speakers (Wharfdale 240s, specs below).

Any thoughts while I wait for my new amp? thanks
