And, knowing Axiom, an EXTRAORDINARILY conservative guideline.

Exactly. In fact it has been said that even the M80's are tested up to 1000 watts/channel.

in fact, for the M80's, the article says 700 Watts continuous with peaks of 1100 Watts; for a duration of 100 hours. (of course, no clipping of the amp's output).

As others pointed out, with a high quality music source and clean power you can go way beyond the 400W.
I've never measured the wattage, but went to over 100dB with peaks at ~110dB in a 5000 cubic feet room; then people started to leave as it was too loud. No signs of distortions or any other artifacts. I LOVE my M80s!
All I can tell you (although this doesn't mean much) is that I had my volume at 6/10 on my preamp with monoblocks rated at 350W but with high gain - 32dB.
I would much rather keep an eye on the amp than the speakers.

Is there a device available that will remove artifacts and or control the output volume so all media can be played without worrying about sudden spikes in volume?

I haven't found the limit of my ADA1000 and my M80'yet.
The only distorion I've heard related to the recording.

brwsaw, that function is currently available on Audyssey equipped receivers and is called Dynamic Volume. I've had middling success with it, and mostly use it as a night mode.

Device: a decent pre/pro will have that feature, even without Audyssey.
Software: JRiver.

I really like dynamic range, most movies wouldn't be the same without it.
I'm refering to the difference in volume when songs and or channels are switched.
Would DRC control this as well?
