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).

It's a VIRTUAL channel unless stated otherwise.
