Do I need a new power amp for these, or is my AVR sufficient?
Longtime headphone user who is doing my first speaker setup.
Just ordered the LS50s. Wondering whether my AV Receiver has enough juice to run these properly as 2.0 or if I need to get a new power amp to put in the chain. They will be used in a room that's 11x14' at moderate volume.
Can you guys give me some input?
Here are the AVR details:
Published materials provide the following, but as you know, not all watts are equal, which is my issue here.
90W per channel (8 ohms, 20Hz-20KHZ, .09 THD, 2 channels)
Dynamic = 250w (2 ohms), 210 (4 ohms) 180 (six ohms) 140 (eight ohms)
