“The facts, while very interesting, have little to do with the decision”. The famous quote applies beautifully to audio amplifiers. If you ask any competent amplifier designer what specification is the most important, they will usually respond with “all of them” or “none of them”. The reason is that the specifications are the end result of designing an amplifier that has characteristics that the designer believes produces great music. Are watts per channel important? Sure, but are 500 watts better than 50? That depends on what you think the word “better” means. More power? More control? There is no wrong answer, it is simply a matter of understanding what the term means.
