Then again synergy is important.
You said it.
I am not really sure a £500 pair of, frankly budget speakers was designed in such a way that they only sound good on amps retailed at 3 times the price. Seems odd.
I am considering getting a Rotel power amp in the near future and using the Tribute as a pre-amp, as I like its sound. The power amp can deliver 120w per channel into 8Ohm. Reckon that may be enough
