High quality power supplies are usually reserved for the better (far more expensive) amps on the market. The mid-fi options we are discussing are probably excluded from that discussion.

All I was trying to convey to the OP was that a minor difference in wattage should not be viewed as a significant factor in the decision. If I had said, "Forget specs and trust your ears", would that have resonated with the OP? Probably not.

I was trying to follow this tenet:

The other extreme are the inexpensive Class D amps advertising "50WPC" that have a power supply that will only allow, at most, 20WPC.

I guess we don't have to get too far into the weeds, but a couple hundred extra in an amp is usually money well spent (in mid-fi) if the budget allows.


My only concern is that people think that "xxWPC" is some sort of hard and fast measurement when in reality it only tells a certain part of the story (the way the manufacturer wants it to be told, no less).

We're on the same page here.

It's a VIRTUAL channel unless stated otherwise.
