You mean upgrade fever?
Got to spend that money?
People will say all kinds of things. Internet hearsay is ubiquitous.
Well, it is fun to spend money. I am no stranger.
I've tried to find all kinds of excuses to buy, buy, buy.
So are you going from good sounding B&W speakers that measure "poorly" to other speakers that are good sounding and measure superbly?
If this is the case, I think the Focal 836w is good sounding but may not measure that superbly.
I have the 826v. They do sound very good to my ears. But their on-axis FR is like +/- 3 to 4 dB.
The Ascend, like other accurately measured speakers from Revel, KEF, Salk, Philharmonic, NHT, RBH, TAD, Pioneer, etc., will probably measure a lot better than the Focal 836w.
