    Does anybody have experience of this combination? The Brio is rated at 50W, would i have a problem with the MA Silver 200's?

    Room it will be in is large, but good acoustics and I don't need it to go too loud.

    Thanks.

    I asked MA about Silver 300's and they advised the Brio could 'drive but not control' the 300's.
    They added that the Brio would fair better with the 200's and be perfect with the standmount 100's.
    I came away thinking an Elex might be neeeded...

    May be a bit underpowered. The Elax will give you a more headroom at 72 watts into 8 ohm but if you can stretch to it the Elicit R 105 watts into 8 ohm will really make them sing.

    The Brio will have no problem driving and controlling those speakers. Very capable amp regardless of price and specs......
