My room is 15 foot wide and about 30 feet long with nine foot ceilings.
Due to room logistics, the speakers are about two feet from the front wall and then ten feet to the listening position. That is to say, about half the room is behind the listening position.
I can make my ears bleed with the Coda CS amp I am currently using so I know I do not need 300 watts. I am interested in texture, timbre, imaging, and sound stage; and probably listen at between 85 to 90 decibels at the listening position.
Tyler recommends about 100 watts for my particular speaker model.
However, I read a lot of comments that tube watts sound louder than solid state watts so I am searching. I would rather buy quality at 75 watts if it would work, rather than spend for 100 watts that I might not need.
Thanks for listening,
