How do I choose an amplifier/receiver?
Unfortunately, this can often be a daunting task. With the multitude of brands and options on the market today, the choices can be quite confusing. While Energy cannot recommend one brand over another, it is recommended that high quality components be used, in order to extract the most from your speakers. Due to a lack of industry standards, amplifier power ratings are difficult to compare. It is recommended to listen to the amplifier and to determine if it possesses the sound quality and power to reproduce the sounds YOU like. A lack of real power will result in driving the amplifier into "clipping", which results in audible distortion reproduced through your speakers.
