Maybe we should specify our subject matter before too many minds go the way of the gutter. All of us would love to own gratuitously large speakers and a massive amplifier to blare music or movies whenever it suits our fancy. Unfortunately, until we win the lottery, we aren't afforded the room or money that such luxuries require. So again we ask: does size matter? Can we still enjoy enveloping sound and satisfying bass from a $200 speaker system that does not occupy much space? MidiLand is here to answer with their 7100M Dolby Digital 5.1 ready system.
Those of you who recognize that handsome set are dead accurate - in fact, the 7100M is basically MidiLand's popular 7100 dressed up in a new metallic finish (and we bet it would look sharp next to a 36" Sony WEGA XBR television). While there haven't been additional enhancements made to any of the components included with the 7100M, we were very impressed when we reviewed the 7100 system back in February so there is a good chance that no additions were necessary. MidiLand has targeted this system towards not only the multimedia enthusiast, but also to the entry-level home theater buff. In a word, the new 7100M is all about convergence.
