regarding what is said in the Hometheatershack review of the M100,
reading the listening impressions written by Myers reminded me often of my own experience with my M80s.

i've had them now for quite a while, and i still come out WOWED after a listening session.

For HT -20 is my go to volume. Any louder and I tend to enjoy it less. 2 channel seems to always be around -30 (when its just me listening).
You're right v4 tweeters. Ah well can't be right all the time.

For movies, I normally start at -10 Db & adjust from there. Mostly it remains at -10 Db though.

Just for laughs, I once tried U-571 at 0 Db & it was brutal & scary - it scattered the cats to the other end of the house...

My next guess was that they ran out of power but their amp is a perfect match for the M100.
Not sure what to think..maybe it was in the source material?

I love U571. I've lost myself in this movie more than any other.
I fond it on Blu ray last Christmas and still have to watch it.
The DVD copy I have sounds great, I'm hoping the Blu ray version is at least as good.
The PJ and screen isn't nice to non HD content.

if you have Master and Commander on DVD, try the storm sequence on the high seas at Ref. Level +1.0 dB; which is the normal level for this DVD.
and then tell me what you think. ;-)

P.S.: it is supposed to be frightening and scary...

I don't have M & C but I rented it some time ago. Very impressive battle scenes if I recall correctly...

When the ships splintering around you, most impressive.

There is some good (reasonable!) discussion on the M100 review over at HTS (where I just joined up).

Seems that the reviewers overlooked the supplied Port Plugs to be used near a wall & Axiom rightly set them straight:

Very impressive review of the M100, though it seems more suited for much larger rooms than I currently occupy. As for the port plugs , I would have thought that would be a no brainer for 3 audiophiles.
