Here we go again..... OK, according to OSHA, at 85 db, hearing loss will occur if exposed for 16 hours or more, at 90 it's 8 hours, 100 it's 2 hours and at 110 it's .5 hours. Instant peak db's of 140 will result in immediate hearing loss.

Listening to music at 110 db's for any length of time is not a good idea.

I am currently running a set of M80's off a Denon 3808. I'm using them in my great room as surround speakers or four channel stereo. The front speakers are Opus 2.2's, being driven off a 200 wpc Rotel amp with the 3808 being used as a pre amp. The M80's do not have any trouble keeping up with the 2.2's. I've experimented a bit, driving the M80's with the Rotel and then the 3808. I can't tell a bit of difference.
