Default pass labs XA30.8

Hello friends
I'd like to know that they think of the amplifier XA30.8 to attack a dynaudio C2. I currently have the combination of plinius m8 + amplifier sa201. Control of the bass is very good, and I have some fear losing that aspect if I change the 201 by the xa30.8 What do you think? the c2 have a sensitivity of 88db

No experience with those, but compared to the Parasound JC1 400 watt monsters, the XA30.8 bass is slightly softer, still same amount of bass though, it outclasses the JC1 in almost every other way by a large margin.

Ok, thank you friend. My main concern is if XA30.8 was able to obtain improvement compared to the Plinius SA201 and especially if 30w would be sufficient to the dynaudio C2

r32,

If this helps the XA30.8 clips at a lot higher power, closer to 90W.
