I just wonder why you think that big amps are silly "now" ? If by big you mean powerfull, loudspeakers aren't getting more efficient and class D allows powerful amps that are efficient and quite cheap. It seems to me that big amps are less silly today than they were in the past.

I do not mean high wattage amps are silly. I do know however that anytime you *need* more than a 100 watts or so in a full range speaker there is no doubt that there is nasty thermal and inertial dynamic compression going on that very few owners of such speakers will ever be aware of.
