Powering a pair of Focal Aria 926 speakers with a Parasound A23+. Have had no issues and would not listen loud enough to cause a problem. The amp just lumbers along without much stress at all. A sensitivity of 92db helps.

I am enjoying my Parasound A23+ and P6 combo. $1,800 and $1,600 respectively so sorta out of the budget. Paired with Focal Aria 926 speakers and already hearing things on CD's I've not heard. I'm looking forward to adding the Bluesound Node later this year to stream Amazon Music HD

As for measurements , I always looked for empirical data to start off my assessment or evaluation. BUT, I also look at, function, aesthetics, price and, yes opinions of others.
