B&W 683's

hi all,

 

Does anyone know if a roksan caspian m1 series would power B&W 683's ok? i currently have the 602 s2's and am looking at upgrading my speakers. i used to have a technics amp SUA808 120 watts alot more power than a caspian, yet the caspians sound stage and quality is alot better. or on the other hand what speakers would match a roksan caspian well. i listen to all kinds of music, soft and agressive and like it loud. louder the better and usually at about 12 o clock (half way) on the volume dial.

In terms of spec., it should have no problems driving those speakers, and they are speakers that enjoy being played loud. 12 o'clock? Most amps I've had are painfully loud at that point, if not already distorting (depending on the mastering of the source).

my room is 6m x 4m so it is a good room to fill with music
