I see what you mean about the M3-3000-3. The 1200S that arrived today is way too much power for the Totems. It's so loud, I have to set the Oppo trims really low on the main speakers. Same for the gain control. It's in the 55 - 62 range. AIUI, this is not desirable.
Also learned that I may not need a center channel. My center speaker is located on the long side of rectangular room and there's a lot of cancellation at my LP. Speech and midrange sound much better from the Left/Right speakers which are exactly at the 1/4 and 3/4 position, respectively.
