    I'm Bi-Amping my Main Kefs with a pair of these currently and I can say they sound absolutely great, but...Can anyone tell anything about the power performance of my 4 recently aquired power amps from these numbers?

    Are they good performers on paper?

    Harmon/Kerdon PA2400 Signature Series
    Continuous Average Power
    Per Channel (FTC), from 20Hz to 20kHz
    both channels driven.
    8 Ohms: 120 Watts @ <0.08% THD
    4 Ohms: 170 Watts @ <0.08% THD

    Bridged (FTC), from 20Hz to 20kHz, Mono
    8 Ohms 340 Watts @ <0.15% THD

    HK PA2400 Specs
    Dynamic Power (IHF, 1kHz tone burst)
    8 Ohms: 150 Watts
    4 Ohms: 270 Watts
    2 Ohms: 440 Watts

    High Instantaneous Current Capacity (HCC): +/- 100 Amperes

    Negative Feedback: 12dB
    Power Bandwidth @ half-rated poutput, 8 Ohms: <10Hz - >100kHz

    Frequency Response @ 1Watt (+0/-3dB): 0.1Hz-250kHz
    Slew Rate: 280 Volts/uSec
    Rise Time:1.2 Volts/uSec
    Transient Intermodular Distortion (TIM): Unmeasureable
    Damping Factor: 120
    Signal:Noise Ratio (ref rated power,A-wtd): 120dB
    Input Sensitivity/Impedance:0.8 Volts/33kOhms

    I'm trying to decided whether to flog 2 of them and get a 5 Channel Amp later or whether to hang on to all four for now.

    Thanks,

    Mark.
