I am using my TA-100 with Def. Tech SM 450's, as my desktop system. They drive them with ease while sounding truly beautiful. I am using the USB input from my computer, and they can get pretty loud, yet nice and clean sound, not fatiguing.
I also have the CD-100 hooked up to it, & I really have to dial the volume pretty low when using the CDP, but the sound is really nice to my ears.
I debated before ordering the T-100 , but I am glad I did. they can drive much larger speakers with ease too, as I have discovered when I hooked it up to my JBL 590 's Towers: no signs of under powering, and can achieve clear and detailed highs, with a enough power to deliver a good low end punch.
disclaimer: IMHO, YMMV.
I too like the TA-100 very much. I think their power rating is a true rating vs so many other manufacturers. Enjoy! 😊

a pretty GOOD indication of just how much power you REALLY need when driving reasonably sensitive speakers. The JBL590 is pretty good at turning electricity into sound which helps a lot.
