Any other users of these out there - interested how you set them up.

I set them to small but have played around with crossove and difficult to decide where's best - my options are 50,80, 100, 150 and 200.

Amp is a Pioneer 2011 - few years old now but still a great piece of kit.

Also interested to know if anyone's upgraded one of these amps to a more recent offering and how it compares.

Well having a play around and seeing what sounds best to your ears sounds like as good an idea as any! That said, we're not adverse to setting some parameters on your behalf. We would set your speakers to 'small', for they are, and then, going by the book, we'd set the crossover to 80Hz as this is what B&W claims is the limit of the MT-30s reach.

However, we'd be tempted to set them higher - your option of 100Hz seems fairer. The satellites are only small after all, and we're not sure whether the MT-30s can reach as low as 80 in reality. Try those two settings and let us know how you get on.
