more than enough, the primaluna drove BW602 without a problem

I bought a pair for my son and Fritz said that 100watts was about the right territory to drive his speakers optimally. That really pushes you towards SS, if you don't want to break the bank, not that the speakers would shame a more expensive tube amp at all, they are dam fine speakers, but good tube watts do tend to cost a bit more than SS ones when you get to 100watts.
Fritz and I have exhibited together at audiophile shows for a few years now. The Carbon 7 speakers are a smooth 6 ohm load that we are easily able to drive with our 12 watt 300B tube amp. So the notion that a solid state or tube amp with a fair amount of power is needed does not necessarily apply. There are a number of other factors involved but the speaker design itself allows you to consider a few different options.
