With respect to toe in, I find "how much" really depends on the speaker. That is the key. It takes time and effort, but it is well worth it. Even after you think you've nailed it, it's worth revisiting. I've spent as much as two months experimenting before settling in with a particular arrangement... and I'm always open to further improvement.
If the distance between the speakers is greater than the distance between you and the speakers, that is near field. If the distance between you and the speakers is greater than the distance between the speakers, that is far field. The distance between the speakers determines the size of the field.

I've always considered near field within 5-6 feet of the speakers. Getting direct sound from your speakers before the room can contribute sound...that's what defines near field for me.

There's NearField and VinnieField. I got a taste of the latter with a system he changed.
When the net result of the set up puts me near the soundstage, that is what I deem as near field. In other words near field is close proximity to the soundstage.
Bill says he's got 400 hours on them and that they are ready. He's using the Red Dragon Mono's and I can't remember what else upstream. His M3's have replaced his Reference 3A de Capo BE. Another speaker I might have been interested in if I had more than 8 watts. Should be interesting. Will report back later.
In any case, next time I drive out to Kelowna I plan on taking my 8 watt SET. I am really curious as to how well it will pair with the M3ts. If it works as well as I hope, then I am quite certain I will place my order.
I used an 8 watt SET with my M4's (and with my new M3's) and it was s sublime combination.
That's good to know. Is eight watts enough to break them in or did you use another more powerful amp for that task?
That's so interesting - I went from the De Capo's to the M4's, and just upgraded to the M3 Turbo S!
Oh, 8 W was just fine. If the goal is to get the drivers moving to physically loosen up the suspension and other components, 8 W is plenty. I have a smallish to medium-sized room (around 16' x 13' with an 8 foot ceiling) and anything much beyond "9 o'clock" on my volume knob is too loud for me, depending upon the music. So I don't even have to push my amplifier very hard to drive the speakers more than loud enough for effective break-in. Hope that helps.
