Congratulations on the M3 speakers, I also have M3's and enjoy them powered by a Roksan Kandy K2 integrated amp Roksan Kandy K2 integrated amp, plenty of power to get them creating lifelike music in my sitting room.

i recently got my hands on a crown xti 2000, which pump out something like 475w a ch. Would it be a terrible idea to plug my m3v3s into this thing?

While I completely agree with that under-powering statement, how much is too much? I keep reading posts about the m80 being tested to well over 1000w, are the m3 also subjected to the same tests?
