There was no fullrange forum at the time this was started and for whatever reason was never moved. I guess the moderators don't have the time to search for/move all the pertinent threads.

Unless you either only listen to chamber music or at very modest average SPL or you just like to hear your amp clip ~constantly, then WRT tube amps, 35W PP is about the minimum I would recommend, with 60-100 being my preference.

The only Jordan system I've auditioned is Jim Griffin's little BRs driven with various relatively high power SS amps in both large and small rooms, so was able to easily find its rather low amplitude audible distortion limits. In either a small room or 'intimate' seating layout though, they will do fine if enough clean power is available.

For only 10W though, I recommend at least 95dB eff. speakers.

Me thinks GM likes to listen loud... i'm using 2 W & 90 dB efficient speakers... every once in a while i wish for a bit more power, but for most of my listening i get away with it...

How much you need depends on, how loud, how big your room, what kind of music.

The low efficiency is my biggest issue with the Jordan...

I have to fully agree with this statement! That is like recommending at least a 105 db efficient speaker for a one watt amp, and this is about right too IMO.

When you say you'd like more power, does this mean that your volume pot it at 100%

No... clipping starts at about 50% on the dial.

ok but you clearly hear your amp clip, at the volume you'd like to have
