Normally M2's with Levinson amps would use a SDEC processor for crossovers and room/speaker correction. Did Keith say way he chose not to use Arcos/SDEC in your system?

If he has his own...

Yep. 4 x 708 beds. 4 x 705 ceiling. 1 x sda8300 to power them all.

Nyal had originally spec'd wides using 2 more 708 beds, but only the Trinnov / SDP-75 can do 9.1 + 4 Atmos. That's a steep...

My SDEC, 7 series surrounds, and 7200 watts of SDA amps arrived last Friday. Now I just need the three M2's. The room isn't ready yet, though, so there is still time.

I am curious as well. I checked my local GC way back and they said only a few select GC's were eligible to sell them. One in Nashville, another in CA, and I forgot the 3rd. I called all 3, wanting...

There is also power compression, though, right? So doubling the power doesn't always provide +3 dB increase in volume.

Do you think the introduction of the 4367 under the Synthesis banner spells the end of demos using the M2 (in all but the true Pro space)? Wonder if we will see a similar M2 based system at Cedia...

I am kind of laughing at the idea of 4 x 18 subs in a room his size needing 240v per amp so he can run them with 3,000w instead of 2,000w.
