Does anyone have any thoughts about the v-5xe's ability to drive the Dynaudios to realistic sound levels on symphonic music (e.g. Bruckner, Mahler). Room is under 15' x 12' x 8.5

I am presently using the Krell s-275 and thinking of switching to the Ayre. The Krell is 550 watts into 4 ohms; the Ayre is 300 into 4 ohms. The Dyns are 4 ohms, 85 dB sensitivity.

I drive Harbeth C7-ES3 with the V-5xe and have plenty of headroom at 95db in our 14 x 18 x 11 room. Even with the 1db sensitivity differene, I suspect you'll be fine
