Which power amp for NS-10

Hello, i just bought Yamaha NS-10 and i've got Bryston 4Be 250Watts per channel @ 8 ohms. Is it so much power to NS-10? Do i need something with less power?
Thanks.

Too much power is better than too little power. It may be counter-intuitive, but that's the way it works. You should be fine as long as you can avoid sending them giant spikes, and you pay attention to gain-staging.

There's one studio I use a lot that that has Brystons powering their NS-10s. They sound just like they should. A lot of people rave about those amps.

Bryston makes good amps. Hafler is pretty cool as well.

There's a well-respected engineer here in Brooklyn who uses a 250 watt-per-side hafler on his NS10s. Fuses too. He makes good sounding records.

The Brystons are technically "better" if that means anything to you.

Thanks again, i'm glad i did good choice.
About the gain - there is just power switch, inputs, outputs, thats it. There is not gain switcher, maybe inside?

It's fine. In fact it's great, not too much power. Bryston's are great for NS-10's. It brings them to life. I have an 8B bridged on mine and have had no problems. We did fuse them to be safe but yet to have blown one in over two years...

You're in good shape, start mixing away,

Oh yea, we integrated a Genelec 7071A sub into ours with excellent results with the NS-10's playing full range.

The Bryston amp *smokes* the Hafler on NS10s. You'll be deeply saddened that you subjected yourself to the Hafler for so long. Seriously.

Unless of course the Hafler happens to be a 1988 vintage P500. I've had peoples jaws drop at my NS10s over the years. And that amp has run non-stop for 19 years on my NS10's.

2 Amp in line fuses on the hot will save you a boatload of money over the years.

Colors the sound too much.

But at the big sound motels they have them on their NS10's so as always...YMMV.

Hi guys,
I'm into the same question too. I'd go Bryston, but can't afford it at the moment. Today I'm going to try a Labgruppen iP 450. Anybody used one of their iP series products on NS-10's? If so, what do you think about it?
