Re: Amps for dummies
Correct Moose, the Paradigms are pretty efficient, that said they sounded better with more power to my ears..... BUT let me say I've always kind of subscribed to the never have too much power thing!
Power hungry speakers.. Yes, low efficiency, difficult loads (some speakers offer a pretty stable resistance, while others drop low, some really low and that can be difficult for a receiver to do as they get current limited.
I know you just bought that receiver, and it is quite current so yes adding an amp, for the fronts, or all speakers would offer you an upgrade path.
