Home High Efficiency Speaker Asylum

Need speakers that can rock with just one watt? You found da place.

I hate to say it, but I went to the dark side...

I used a 45 SET amp for the longest time and prior to that a 30 watt Atma-Sphere amp. My problem was with the phone preamp that didn't quite have enough gain for my Shelter cartridge with the 45 amp though since we moved in 2010, I didn't have space to unpack all the records and I was doing a music server anyway.

After picking up a few trhift stores LPs, I got the bug for a change and put my old Classe DR9 150 watt SS amp into the system and it's still there a year later. It does play louder and it sounds great with more authority. You surely won't hurt the speakers if you're sane. My Edgarhors use JBLs which are speced for 25 to 60 watts or more. Real specs are hard to find. At 25 watts, you ears will break before you break the speakers.
