If we are talking about noise like hiss, the frequency is too high to matter. Am I close?
Otherwise if all the components are capable of passing said frequency without clipping it shouldn't matter much.
That being said, on my system it worked out best to have the gain on the EP on max or close to it. This seemed to be a popular setting with the folks at HTS as well.
Note on the power discussion: the 250 watts or whatever the rated/tested power...will only be output if the input voltage is high enough.
Trust your ears beyond all else.
