Dave Upton (owner of Home Theater Forum) recently review a pair of MT-110 loudspeakers. Click on the Home Theater Forum logo to read the full review.
"Turning my system up to reference level, the MT-110’s didn’t break a sweat taking all the power I could give them with nary a complaint."
"Immediately apparent was the ability of the MT-110’s to play really, really loud."
To start, I listened to a lot of music over the weekend, hours and hours of music. I have a pretty eclectic taste and I tried a wide range of genres with these speakers. I played Rush, Journey, ACDC, Styx, Harry Conick Jr, Enya (wife's CD), Vangelis, George Gershwin, Saint-Saens, Rossini to name a few.
First let me say that what everyone has said about the imaging of these speakers is spot on. It's really amazing. But what really astounded me was their sound stage. They took the music and expanded it into three dimensions. On certain recordings I felt like I was in a much larger venue listening to the performers on stage, and I had the best seats in the house. For instance Neil Peart playing drums was phenomenal on these speakers.
The clarity of these speakers is incredible and yet they are not bright in any way so I could listen to them for hours. They handled everything I threw at them. It's really interesting to play the melodic and ethereal sounds of Enya one minute and then follow it up with the screaming lyrics of ACDC the next. But it told me that these speakers can handle what ever you throw at them because they played both wonderfully. And if you want to experience the absolute bliss of clarity play "Titles" on the "Chariots of Fire" soundtrack by Vangelis on the MT110s. As my wife said: "It's incredible".
Speaking of volume. I have no idea how loud these speakers can go because when I turned these up they never skipped a beat and showed no signs of quitting so I gave up.
Regarding movies: I watched all of Oblivion and Mad Max Fury Road and parts of World War Z and Inception. The 110s handled the soundtracks for these movies effortlessly and the horizontal center channel performed great, the dialogue was crystal clear. These speakers bring movies to a whole new level especially when coupled with my dual PSA subs.
I could go on and on but I'll sum up my experience by saying I haven't considered serious stereo listening in at least 25 years. These speakers made me want to do nothing else BUT comb through my CDs and listen to them in stereo again. Not just hearing music in the background, but actually LISTENING to music.
