It seems this month there is talk of having some WATTS!! Hmmm, did i mention without WATTS there is no hi fidelity, there is no realism? Did I mention you can't reproduce the LIVE event with some useless 20 W amp. But to have a miserly tube amp hooked into this adative amp is kinda retarded. Like some one else mentioned, buy the right amp the first time. If you put new tires and fancy wheels on a 1992 TOYota, it's still useless and still junk. Watts, there is no substitute. And the article says what I've said all along, you cannot get 106dB of realsim on 6" speakers, nor some 40W obsolete tube amp. It's a mirage, it's delusional. Wake up to WATTS. It matters.
