I see a paradox here...
Gotta go take the medication.

hi lazyfly,

I just happen to use M4 speakers as my garage/test speakers. All my amps (including GCs) drive them without an apparent problem.

Using GCs the volume will still more than adequate to annoy you. Sorry about that.

I do agree with their one tick rating for HiFi Music. They are similar in performance to speakers found in Sony mini mid-fi systems.

Hi grege.

Thanks for that. Especially the volume vs. annoyance part

I've heard a pair too, through a Yammy 440 amp and would agree with the 1 star also. What I'm curious about is when LSK release their new line of higher quality speakers, what star rating will they get

Still they were designed primarily for computers etc so they'll sound alot better than the tv which is all I'm aiming for at present - just a nice little introduction to good sound. The room is quite small too so that'll help then a bit.

Tempted to go for some M5's just because... just contradicted myself!

Thanks again

As for the efficiency comment, he asked if a reg supply would make up for 85db speakers - the answer is no.
What paradox - a reg supplied amp has more stable bass response than a non-reg supplied amp. It sounds tighter and more controlled. If medication will help you get over yourself, then by all means take it.

And what does that mean?
Doesn't it indicate that the amp is driving better the speakers?
