I think your Vincent Hybrid would be fine to use assuming you don't turn the volume up to the point that you damage the speakers.

I'm have converted an 11'X13' bedroom into a music room for occasional near field listening at low to medium volumes.These speakers will initially replace my good old JBL L40s I've owned since college. The issues around unwanted hum, hiss, or even some graininess are what I'm worried about., especially since they are near field. I'm just wondering if anyone has actually tried highly sensitive speakers paired with high power, or even mid power SS amp/preamp sources and the issues they faced.
Thanks for all the inputs. I'm looking at a few different full range/ single driver design options that I feel comfortable to build myself. Great winter project (alongside of my motorcycle engine rebuilding) to take on. Of course, the real cool part of it is the incredible learning experience. Glad to learn Pensils sound good with higher powered SS amps. Can't wait to hear some of those female jazz singers thru a good quality full range driver.
