I could crank it to 70 percent before getting distortion from my receiver. So with the Cambridge supplying the watts and the receiver supplying the signal only, the receiver can be turned up to 90% or more; almost all the way up. At low volumes I don't hear a difference, there might be? I put spacers under the feet to add space for additional cooling. The .005 distortion is the wow factor that allows the volume to go up without distorting the signal so there is no substitute for a clean signal and there is no substitute for new drivers that demand higher wattage so Cambridge Azur 851W provides the rare ingredients. Addition to original post.
It did get hot, and I started using a fan, but on day fifteen I dozed off on the couch with the volume way down and was woke up to a loud pop. No sound from the right speaker and confirmed that it was the unit. I sent it back and will try the Emotiva that puts out 550 rms watts per channel and will not have to turn it up so high. I hope that mine was just a fluke and that your's lasts many years.
