Sure, you need enough to pull your speakers, but ---
My speakers are 6 foot from my ears.
What I need is excellent sound at a lower volume --
I got that ---
Most tube amps are lower watt power, but many claim they are excellent at lower volume.

Carver Home Audio (Stereo) Discussions and Questions

I appreciate all the comments and suggestions. I spoke with Rolland this afternoon to get an idea of what the refurb would involve and cost and I think that even though it is not cheap, it is still quite a bit less than even a used Sunfire. If I had the luxury of auditioning the sunfire vs a fully functional m4.0t that would be the ideal situation for me to make a decision. (Or if I just had tons of extra money to try them out and then sell the one I liked the least)
I am leaning towards refurbishing the m4.0t and will let you know how that goes! I use it with C-1 and DQ10s. I am interested in Carver Amazings, too.
Thanks again for all the help.

Seriously, I am not sure now will have to think about it a bit more. I wonder if there is a Sunfire in North Carolina I can audition before making this move?
Thanks again for all the advice and opinions.

That being the case I too would lean towards a Sunfire.
Driving tough loads is much better handled by Sunfire.
