you should be fine. When i was in a 12x16 room, I used a Cambridge Audio Azur 540 integrated without any stress or problems. I believe it was a 40watt per channel amp. This was with B&W 602s3 speakers, i forget what their sensitivity was though, probably 87ish.

Jonomega, why did you,
1) Decide to go with the Rotel and give up the Cambridge?
2) What differences are between the two?
3) How much more do you like the Rotel over the Cambridge?

I did it because I didn't like the headphone outlet of the cambridge. It shut down my amp when i plugged in my grado SR125. This doesnt happen with the Rotel separates. Also, dealer gave me a good deal on the upgrade
Additionally, I was stuck in the "ooh, rotel + B&W = win".
Furthermore, I like the looks of the rotel (black)
SQ wise, i never did a critical comparison; but thats not what i was focusing on when i upgraded. They both sound great.

Thanks. So what model of Rotel separates do you have? How about model of you B&W's? Do you use Rotel source componets? And how about inter-connects and wires? Do you believe you must get expensive ones? And if you have pictures can you post them? I know I am asking much, but you do seem to know what you are talking about. Thanks

Check my public profile for the details you seek. Interconnects are from Bluejeans cables. Speaker wire are belkin 12ga from bjc. They are more than expensive enough. Any further expense on cables would be wasting money on things that don't matter in the grand scheme of my stereo. I certainly know enough to know what matters in my price range, however I won't claim to know all of the acoustical physics and engineering methods behind making this work -- although that knowledge is held by select few posters on this forum. Basically, I know enough to have fun; if I need to know more to make things work better, I know who to ask
