You know, Moose, high powered amps are great. They produce very clean power. And, that is one of the keys too. High power means you have more available power, when its called upon. And that, is very important all the time, especially in a dedicated 5.1 and 7.1 system. Also, there is the time you listen at low volumes. That is also when clean power is important.
Transients, a major problem for amps and receivers, those short bursts can wreck havoc, create much distortion, screw up your sound. So, high power is not a good thing, its a great thing.
So, even though I like my music loud, like kenny, it means nothing if its not reproduced cleanly.
