Awesome info regarding this topic!

Cool.

Guys Im using the M1DAC (Musical Fidelity) as my pre, this is a DAC system.

What I really want to know is, how much power does my amp need to have? enough to feed my Triton One?
I read in the manual that the rec. amplification its about 20 - 650W/channel, but how much do I really need per channel?

With the T1's 1600 watt amps doing the heavy lifting, these speakers are not hard to drive. I agree with Wayne, T Cobe, anthem et al, sound quality is more important that watt quantity, and that your best bet is to audition some quality amps to hear what sounds good to you (lots of good ones to try suggested by Wayne, anthem, T Cobe).

My T1's are powered by a NAD C275BEE stereo amp with 250 watts per channel dynamic power and 150 watts per channel continuous power. I've never had isues with clipping, or lack of volume when I wanted it. The whole audio range is smooth, powerful, clean at any volume.

Good luck!

As everyone has said, CLEAN power, is what is needed. 100-200 watts of REAL RMS power per channel at around 8 ohms (your Ones are probably a little less, so the power will be a little more than what is rated for 8 ohms), not the fake specs reported by a LOT of receivers, that will be PLENTY, you can go with less.
Hope this helps,
God Bless, Wayne

Thats true!

Awesome help!!! Ill look for a amp that suits better for my needs!
As I wrote, Ill use it just for listening to music. Enjoying good quality speakers and full of detail.

Ill look maybe for a McIntosh or Classe? Any good recommendations will be awesome.
But I really thank you for all your tips and support!

Minchaca,

Just a quick follow up note regarding amplifier power. If a speaker has an efficiency rating of 92 dB, that means that at 1 watt of power, it should generate a 92 decibel sound pressure level. 92 is quite loud to me. I enjoy listening between 75 and 85 dB. Looking at dB ratings you should expect from the Triton Ones:

1 Watt= 92 dB
2 Watts= 95 dB
4 Watts= 98 dB
8 Watts= 101 dB
16 Watts= 104 dB
32 Watts= 107 dB
64 Watts= 110 dB
128 Watts= 113 dB
256 Watts= 116 dB
512 Watts= 119 dB
1024 Watts= 122 dB
2048 Watts= RIDICULOUS

My point is, a measly 8 watts should generate over 100 dB and that is plenty loud. Some speaker tests of the Triton One indicate a 4 ohm stable amp will sound better as impedance dips below 4 ohms at a few frequencies. Room size, acoustics, and the distance you sit from the speakers will make a difference on perceived volume; however, any high quality amp that can produce stable clean power should sound great. If you're a hard core rocker, shoot for 200 watts per channel.

Your best bet is to go back to your dealer and demo as many amps as they can show you that are in your price range and decide which one is best for you. I hope this helps. Happy hunting.

Cheers,

T Cobe

Thanks for that little table of W-dBs.

And yes, after reading all of this great posts/messages, im shure that im going to give me a time to listen as many amps as possible.

Cheers!
