I have the Studio 100's v2 and am powering them with a Yamaha RX-v795 85wpc Receiver. They sound fantastic no question about it, but it seems EVERYONE understands that they need 150-200wpc to really get your money's worth. My question is, has anyone gone from a receiver's MINUTE power such as 85wpc to a seperate amp in the suggested power range? I'm constantly worried about sending unclean power and sound to them at higher bass and volume settings and causing damage. Also, how can you really tell when your pushing them too much? I like to turn down my PS-100 sub and direct all of the bass to the mains when listening to music. Even with 85wpc I can get some incredible bass, but...the paranoia trumps the enjoyment Thanks for any advice/info!!! P.S. I'm dying to get a nice amp, but I'm going to be paying off the mains and center for a while! I've heard Parasound amps are a good match.. I can get a 5 channel 150wpc Ultra THX Marantz 9000 for $750...it's a store demo.
