Quit limiting people on amount of power an amp produces. I've been using 300wpc @8ohm amps for years and years. Watch the volume and you'll be fine.

For example, the least powerful flagship amp that Krell made for the Evolution series is a 300w which I own. People should be pushing the limits (with caution) so we can get to the next level of fidelity. If I hadn't pushed this headphone to the next level, I would have...

Could be your amp...or anything else in the chain.
