Just picked up a pair of CM1s. Beautiful looking speakers. I'm hoping to get some advice on an amplifier to pair them with.
I have an old Carver PM-175 laying around I was thinking of using. However, I'm a bit concerned that it has too much power - 175 watts at 8 ohms. The CM1 has recommended power of 30-100 watts.
Can anyone give me their thoughts?
Actually, too little power is more dangerous as that is when clipping occurs. This will kill speakers. That amplifier should make them sing so no need to worry.
