the revels need tons of power--i use 250w/side with my f32s. i just don't see 7ow cutting it--you'll hear much more bloom and low end extension with much more juice.

I agree with the others who stated you need lots of power with the Studios.
I used to own a pair, (for five years actually), and I quickly determined that the Mark Levinson No. 27 amp, (100 wpc), that I owned when I bought them, was not nearly powerful enough. (I think that by only having 100 wpc that the woofers were sucking up so much power that it affected the rest of the frequency response.)
I then upgraded to the ML No. 23, (200 wpc), and the sound was much better. Not only had the bass tighted up, but everything seemed to be more musical.
Eventually I upgraded to the hybrid Lamm M2.1 monoblocks, (200 wpc), and these refined the sound to such an extent that I feel they brought out the very most that these speakers could present. (And, to be honest, they also showed that my amps were now a bit better than the Studios, so I upgraded to the EgglestonWorks Andra II, but that is another story.)
That is my two cents worth, and Good Luck in your search!
