Hi -- I have had this question for some time. I'm looking at the B&W CDM NT Series (I'm looking at a lot of speakers, actually) and notice that their wattage rating is 120W (For the CDM1NT). I had been considering the B&K 7270 to drive whatever speakers I end up with, but this has a rating of 200wpc. How important is this? I obviously don't want to "over-power my speakers", but have heard often that distortion hurts more than power. I have also been told that the increase in wattage will provide "overhead", but I don't know what that means. I currently have a Denon 4800 which provides 125 W. I would stick with this, but have been convinced that a separate amp would sound better. Should I look for one in the 120 Watt range or what? Thanks.
