    Is an amplifier used to just add volume? Would a 100 watt/ch receiver give good audio to most speakers? (Examples
    Paradigm Studio 60, Dahlquist QX10, Rockets 710, PSB Silver Stratus or Swan 6.1.)And if these speakers need more power than the 100 watt/ch receiver can produce would one use, for example, a 200 watt amp with the receiver through the pre outs? Thanks

    Another question. If an amp is rated 200watts/ch at 8 olms does that mean it puts out 100watts/ch at 4 olms?

    if it's an ideal design it should put out 400 watts at 4ohms but usually it would put out 300 watts
