I am considering replacing my Polk LSi-9s fronts



with Magnepan Super MMGs.



IS this going to be a worthwhile upgrade? I am not looking for lots of punchy bass to rattle the house. I have a sub for that. Just the two front speakers that will produce a more detailed, transparent and midrange-clean musical sound.
Here is my setup:
AVR - Pioneer Elite VSX-53
Power Amp - EMotiva XPA-3
Sub - Sunfire HRS-10 (1,000W)
The room is medium to small size opening on the right side into a very large atrium with steps to the upper floor on the other side. The room has a problem with bass (the way around, I think )
So, these current LSI-9s are plenty for me. I listen to music at -40 to -30 (out of the -80 to +10 AVR volume range)
Who has experience with these Magnepan Super MMGs? Particularly, in settings similar to mine with a similar gear?
Thanks a lot, everybody.

There is a Magnepan thread. I have a similar system driving older Maggies but no experience with your Polk's and have not heard the MMG. The sound and setup is different enough that you should really try to hear a system.
