Help, is 15 watts p/c enough for a small room
Ive owned quite a few vintage recievers and agree it depends on what you are looking to get out if it. If you are looking for a background music maker, the Klipsch Power Gate is a great sounding integrated for the money. Hypex 50 wpc amp, bluetoot...

+1 for Vincent also would look at the Denon pma 800ne and the new Integrated's from Iota. There is a newly listed Hegel H80 on here within your budget which is a solid performer if looking to buy used.

I feel bad for speaker manufacturers

Audio Doctor goes to Axpona observations so far
I cant think of a worse place to evaluate the performance of a system than a hotel room at an audio show, except maybe a gymnasium. The point of these shows is to see whats new and talk to the manufacturers and designers. Judging performance.... n...
