I'd like to learn more about power amplifiers. I am looking to buy a two channel amp to run my front mains (Paradigms Mon7v2s, but soon to be upgraded to either Studio 60/100s or PSB Stratus Silver/Gold). I want to improve my ROCK music listening. I play my music at very high levels, but I am not a ROLLERBOOMER (that has become my favorite word as of late.) Anyhoo, I'd like to know information about power ratings as it pertains to improving sound reproduction. (ei; 100watts, vs 125 watts vs 200 watts). I know the whole "double the power, 3db fact). What I want to know is why I would buy a $2000 125w X 2 when I can buy a $700 200w X 2? What does a THD rating have to do with the sound reproduction? Ya know, 0.09% vs 0.00003%? Any info or experience in buy and listening would be greatly appreciated. Ryan P ------------------ Oops, I dropped my eardrums. Could you pick them up for me?
