HTNG- They NEED POWER! I originally had my Anthem MCA50 (200wpc) powering the 9s, simply put........................................for me, not enough. Hence the Bryston 14B SST. As far as the amp you speak of, Ive never heard it, so I really cant comment, but like I said the specs look "alright". The noise levels seemed a bit high for what I would choose for an aerial setup, but without hearing it together theres just no way of knowing? As far as what type of power will be sent to the aerials, I can only say that each channel on my 14B was tested at 639 wpc, and with the load the speakers put on it, I would suspect it to be more like 900 wpc. If I understand correctly, (I could very well be wrong here) when a speaker is say 8 ohm, w/ a 200 wpc amp, its 200wpc. Now same amp, different 6 ohm speaker, it will jump to approx. 300 wpc. NOW, if the speaker presents a 4ohm load, you will double your power? Or close to it? What I would do if I were you is to find out how well the amp you speak of does with a more demanding load, to be certain it is capable of handling the load. I would anyways just to be sure. Also the crosstalk that I saw in the specs was a bit high, as was the THD at .05, not horrible by any means, but also not as clean as a bryston, classe, or ML. That would be a concern of mine, if I were to spend that type of money on a quality setup. If the guy above me is selling his setup, and hes local, I would definately check that out if the price is right?
