THD+Noise will be lowest in the 10-50 W range, but below 10 W there is just noise, and really no distortion. In reality, THD will be lower at lower power outputs.

Exactly. And not only that - it is also somewhat funny to use an extremely efficient amp, and then burn off a fair bit of power in a resistor - when the result can easily be accomplished by reducing the gain.

Can we please put an end to this useless debate by agreeing to the fact that lowering the gain makes sense for some users, while others might choose to go for other solutions?

According to Bruno it does not do anything with the soundquality:

"The amp certainly isn't going to get worse if you decrease gain (other than SNR it's not going to get better either). "

Just to pick nits, I think it is not true to say "it does not do anything with the soundquality", as SNR will improve, and nothing else will get worse.

Better start a debate with Bruno then, it are his words and he designed this amp.

I agree with your quote from Bruno, but not with your conclusion/summary.

How sad it might be , its true none the less, direct radiator loudspeakers have a efficiency of around 1%

it puts a few things in perspective

And that is sadly primarily the case for PA drivers.

So called hi-end low distortion HIFI drivers typically are a magnitude or two less efficient...

No DSP or other fancy-pancy additives can unfortunately make up for that bottleneck.
