Home High Efficiency Speaker Asylum

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

no reason not to try it, the crux of the matter, I'd opine, will be --

how does that ARC amplifier perform (more to the point, how does it SOUND) at output levels of, say, 50 milliwatts to 1 watt?

That's what, I would opine, a lot of "modern" amplifiers get "wrong" -- because, for the loudspeakers for which they're intended to be used, those output levels are encountered only on "fadeouts".

I put "wrong" in quotes only because it's wrong for nuts like us who use loudspeakers with 100+ dB/watt @ 1 meter sensitivity. Normal (I'll refrain from using yet more quotation marks!) audiophiles, with today's highly-engineered, complex & sophisticated, say, 82 dB/watt @ 1 meter sensitive loudspeakers have (again, I'd opine) very different requirements of an amplifier.

That, in my far from objective, uneducated and completely personal/empirical perspective, is - as Frank Zappa might put it - the crux of the biscuit.

Only one way to find out :-)

all the best,
