Souporhero- please pay no attention to Marakanetz's mid-fi
I owned an A-3 and it's a great amp. Based on the Micro's
specs it will drive them just fine.
I own speakers with Focal drivers, like the Micro, they can sing with low power.
The A-3 is a music lovers amp.
If you want more solid state power, check out the small Spectral amps.
Your other alternative is a good small tube amp(one or two
output drivers per channel.
The Micro Utopias have a 90 dB efficiency at 8 ohms and have a suggested power rating of 30-100 W
The Aleph 3 is rated at 30W into 8 ohms
Having more clean power is always better than not having enough, but I am not really looking to have a block party with this set up.
The thing is, I already have the amp. Have you heard the Aleph line with these speakers?
Marakanetz- first Aloha is a greeting not my name(Kana).
A-3s are avaiable for under $1K, an SA-100 is $4.5K, but my point was it's mid-fi thinking that more power means more music.
The A-3 can drive this load. If Souporhero wants to rock out, A-5s are currently list for around $1.5K or he can add a powered sub like I did.
If I had money to burn,and wanted more power I'd go for a pair of the new Parasound JC-1 monos.
