Currently, I have a $10k power amp driving $5k loudspeakers. That is a ratio of 2 (amp / speakers). It seems the trend is to have a ratio lower than 1. Lately, I saw a review of $21k Dynaudio Confidence 30 in Stereophile, and the reviewer used power amps from NAD and Benchmark each selling around $3k and then used 2 of each in monobloc mode.
- Do you find it reasonable to apply a ratio of 7 or even 3.5?
- What is your current amp / speakers ratio?
