Greetings newmember Newmont: while I've not heard either of your amp choices paired with my Belles, I have always preferred dynamics & headroom so I'd probably opt for the higher power amp. "You don't need a lot of power" I guess that depends on how you define 'a lot'? For my listening preferences I've always liked to use about 200 watts per channel with these speakers. A 100 w/ch Ayre V3, while warm-ish sounding, still runs out of gas when listening at higher SPL's. I'm currently using the C275+P450 Accuphase combo with highly satisfying results both musically & dynamically. Accuphase (as well as some other manufacturers') mosfet designs sound great paired with the high-sensitivity Klipsch designs.
