I've been looking into some of the lower wattage class A amps lately but have several questions about them. I'm most baffled about the volume level with these 8 wpc amps. Most all of my tube amps are rated between 50 & 70 wpc. I often find that the "usable" power falls a little short of the volume I may want to CRANK it up to. I see at lower volumes that the sound is warm, clear and clean for the most part and I like this. Here are a few questions I'd like to ask. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
1. What should I look for in a purchase of a low watt class A amp?
2. Should I pay attention to speaker selection and what direction should I go?
3. Your thoughts and concerns with these type amps.
I hate to sound like a dumb a$$, but thats what I am when it comes to this subject.
Thanks in advance,
