Hi Matt,

I am leaning to having two options. One with the amps and DSP built into the speakers and the other with them outboard. The outboard version would be for the people who want to power them with crazy amounts of power, like me smile.

Now that I've had the opportunity to own multiple v4 including the M100 and play around with different receivers and amps, I'm starting to pay more attention to average and dynamic speaker ratings. If you put a 600W amp in the LFR1100, why would anyone want more? The 1100 is rated at 2400W dynamic; that's 4dB above the max average rating of the amp. Anyone listening to well-recorded music at 600W, is bound to drive the 1100s into compression or worse provided the internal amp has 4dB of headroom.

There is one more thing to consider though. When an amplifier clips a dynamic peak it is nasty but a speaker just reaches compression so you don't actually hear anything.

Hey Craig,
What has become of the different loudspeakers you have been auditioning throughout this review?
Still using some of them or have they all been auctioned off?
Just curious.
Jeff

Craig,
Would have enjoyed hearing some of those, especially the Legacy’s .
They were high on my list at one time.
Thanks, Jeff
