Right on, brother. I'm a 3.6 convert myself, though I find myself needing more oomph than a 100WPC or even 200WPC amp can provide.

I had the 3.6s for nearly 3 years and loved them a lot.
I only had 3 problems with the Maggies:
1 - Lack of dynamics. Compared to really nice box speakers, the maggies lack the dynamics of live music.
2 - Amazing power requirements. You have not heard maggies until you hear them driven by 1000+wpc of serious solid state amplification. You learn with a little experimentation that the more power you feed the Maggies, the better they will sound.
3 - Lack of bass. This ties in with 2. Decent bass performance is very difficult to get from these speakers. Decent bass requires a lot of power and the right components. Many people get so-so bass (or worse) due to driving them with low powered amps and/or using cables/components that do not deliver good bass.
Everything else about the 3.6's is world class.
Even with 2 Plinius SA100 mk3 amps run in MONO (665wpc into the Maggies), which is more power and amperage than the CAM 350, the maggies had the best bass and dynamics I have ever heard from them....
Still, they were not as good in dynamics or bass as a great box speaker... OFC, one would have to spend 2.5 times the $$$ on the great box speaker retail to get this kind of sound.
