So, you need an external amp because you use an external amp? smile

That's right. I don't need an external amp because the plastic shelves it sits on are special plastic shelves. The material it's made up of gives off an aura that causes my amp to boost louder than normal, at reduced distortion.

For the low low price of only $600, I can set you up with your own special shelves. Results may vary. Sold as-is. Seller is not responsible for results. No returns.

What a deal!

Lucky you. I was already in trouble in my early 20s. I had no idea it was not normal to not be able to follow conversation in a loud bar. Had my first bout of ringing as a teenager, though I had no idea a the time what it was, nor did I give it much thought.

Cat, that's it exactly. When I'm in those situations, I just nod my head and smile. I have no idea what people are saying!!

Alan, I thought it funny when, at the Axiom get-together, I asked if you would like a new 40' sailboat for free. I said to you "just tell me that you'll take good care of it". You nodded but never said anything back to me.

So I gave it to someone in Kansas instead.

Cheers,

I'd like a little more headroom then that amp offers though. I want to run a power amp regardless


M80's are 4 ohm speakers and the SC-68 is rated for 250W of continuous power at 4 ohm so my guess is it will be more than enough. I have the SC-67 which is 230 watts continuous at 4 ohms and I don't even come close to cranking it all the way up on my M80's before its way to loud for me to listen too for more than a few minutes. Those Elite receivers have quite a bit of power.
