Not too long ago I used to blast the stereo, and one night I broke two Magico S5 speakers while playing the stereo in excess of 110 dB. I was trying to find out when the speakers would start distorting. Now when I play the stereo loud it is only in the 80-90 dB range, sounds great, and is more than loud enough. I thought as one gets older their hearing deteriorates, but enjoying music at a lower volume seems to be a hearing improvement. Not complaining. Just curious. At least the lower volume saves money on speaker repair.
