I went from Polk Monitor 60 towers, a CS2 center and Monitor 40 surrounds to the Focal 814 towers, Focal 800cc Center and Focal 714 bookshelf surrounds. The audio upgrade was immediately apparent. There was nothing wrong with the Polk, but the Focal were a very obvious upgrade.

They had much better highs and were so much fuller with amazing bottom end, for towers. I got mine a couple years ago and paid way more than what they sell for now. That accessories4less deal is ridiculously amazing compared to what they used to sell for in stores. I think you'd find that a very worthy upgrade if you went that route.

I've since gotten all new speakers, not cause there was anything wrong with the Focal though. I simply end up, constantly, buying new electronics.

Of course, I got it modified with the TK-427, which cheeks it up another, maybe, 3 or 4 quads per channel.

I want to thank everyone for giving me some advice. I think the best route for me to go right now would be to wait another 6 months or so and then do a complete overhaul of my system, looking more into higher end brands such as Ascend, PSB, Paradigm, etc.

I hope you mean include other higher end brands, because obviously Ascend, PSB, Paradigm are not necessarily higher-end than Klipsch. wink.gif

I certainly wouldn't trace mine in for just any Ascend, PSB or Paradigm (and likely for none of them). biggrin.gif
