I disagree with the EAR tests here, beacuse I don't know the Audio 
source. A few watts where good with AM radio because of the bandwith and
you a modest dynamnic range.
Hi-Fi needs a more power for the bandwith end loss AND HEARING LOSS YOU 
Different types of music and recoding levels have differnt DYNAMIC 
ranges, thus more watts of power is needed.
So just how much headroom is needed over the basic audio level
in  DB that reaches your ears.
