Hi Ian. First I'd like to say how amazed I am that you respond to these questions--and that you respond so quickly! That sort of dedication to customers definitely does not go unnoticed. I really appreciate it.
Now for the question--and I apologize if this is a stupid question.

Right now I have a 55 wpc receiver, and the only speakers I've heard on it are the old Large Advents (from the late 70's) that I'm borrowing. I'm not sure if you're familiar with the speakers, but I'm not sure what their sensitivity rating is and I was wondering if the M3's, at 93 db sensitivity, will put out more sound than the Advents--because I'd like them to put out just a *little* more sound than the Advents at equal volume settings on the receiver.

I realize the comparison is a little silly because the Advents are floorstanding and go down to almost 30hz, but it's the only point of comparison I have for my receiver. Any information you could give me on the matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
