RE: SPL, rated power, and sensitivity question

I am not completely sure I understand your question-
Having said this, there are two other factors that significantly impact all of this:
1: speakers and Room interaction: to both the comments above, having satellites and a powered sub take a considerable load off the main amp - and the regularity/irregularity can set the speakers free or box them in with resonances and room artifacts that can make it great on paper but sound like s^&$t
2: what are you listening to - Vinyl?, R2R tape?, Broadcast radio?, CDs? MP3? and How are you listening? is this a 'main' rig for critical listening to hear all that the artist and Recording Engineer want to convey?, or casual music to live by?
I think your comment at the bottom about power employed is spot on.
Having used many different amps in different rooms with different program material, bearing that table in mind could help to wring the best from a system.
