I THINK I am unable to drive my Parasound amps to full power with my Soundstage, the gain is up all the way on the Parasounds yet when I reach 80 on my Aragon Soundstage it seems that its not as loud as it should be...or its still clean sounding and seems I have alot more headroom left to get into...now not that usually play my movies or music at this level for extended periods its just that I want to see the amp pushed abit harder. I am thinking that either there is something I missed in the Soundstage set-up or its alot loud than I think, or the Parasounds have some sort of anti-clipping circuitry in them.. I need to check with my SPL meter tonight to see exactly what levels I am getting. BTW it has no problems driving my Berhinger FD to clipping and there are no clip lights on my Parasounds so the logical explanation is that the sound is louder than I think it is or the Parasounds have some clipping circuitry in them...I hope its not the latter. Also FYI the input sensitivity on the Soundstage is the Dolby Reference of 200mV, output impedence is 50 ohms. I will say that is nice to have a sysytem that I can crank up all the way to full throttle and have it sound as clean as it did at whisper levels. I would test SPLs right now but I dont want to bother the neighbors on a Saturday morning..not that I wouldnt do it because I would but I am feeling nice today.
