You'd probably be better off starting a new thread in the speakers section for more replies to your questions.

Like the quote below, you will have a lot more response if you start your own thread, or ask in a Klipsch related thread.
But, I think you would be fine with R*7 series in the front with a none matching series for your surrounds, not has important as your 3 fronts.

I can finally stop answering the question "when are you getting a matching center?". I can't get more matching than this.

I purchased the Polks also except the LSiM 703 bookshelf. I never knew Polk even made this level of speaker, I have high expectations, but unfortunately mine are on backorder. Did a lot of research but when these went on sale it was an easy decision for me.

Currently running a Marantz NR1506 with a pair of Elac B6's, but I am looking to upgrade the fronts right now. The Elac's feel a little dark for my taste. Great speakers for a small room if you don't need a sub.

That's like going from a side-by-side refrigerator to a thermal six-pack of beer cooler.

How does the sound compare, and why the huge shift in speaker size? Congrats, BTW, because LS50's are incredible speakers for the money!

Had the 802s for 15 years and was ready to try something new. Loved the imaging and sound stage on the 50s which was better than the 802s. Also loved to see the look on my friends faces when they heard the LS50s and they started looking for the other speakers
that just had to be hooked up to get so much from those small boxes.

Ken, thanks for always being an outstanding and helpful contributor.

Thank you. That must be one of those "priceless" moments when people who have seen and heard the big 802's start scratching their heads about the room-filling sound of two svelte, curvy little boxes. Well...photo?

Must feel like a new room, having all that space back. Looks a little more 21st century too. The 802N are a classic look, though can dominate a room in size for what they produce. I can't help but think of "Uncle Fester" when I see them.

Seems you may be "UnLearnt" about just what LS50's sound like in the right space and properly paired with a couple of high quality subwoofers.

Just a joke of course. Never heard the Q's or R's but not a fan of KYF's LS50's or Muons. Too midrange forward for myself.

Got the 6011 a few months back. I'm totally in love. Having 7.1.4 is a dream come true!

Just got delivery of my pair of Ascend 170se today. Replacing ELAC B5. The 170s are definitely clearer and seem more clean. Nice sound stage. I am still debating if I'm keeping them since the new Chane A1.4 is still on my mind. Everything I read gave the nod to the Ascends tho. Was also going to try some HTD L3s as well.

I had picked up a pair of Ascend Acoustics CBM170-SE off Craigslist for $70 a little over a year ago, for my second system. Good speakers, though not something I could rave about. My son jokingly asked one day of I wanted to swap them for the KEF iQ10's he had, which I'd given to him a few months before. I surprised him by agreeing to it. Within a couple weeks he came and swapped back. The speakers (along with the rest of the modest 5.1 system) were then given to my daughter and her BF when he bought a house and she moved out of mine. Again.

Good speakers, and a well-defined soundstage. The KEF's enjoy more latitude and depth to the soundstage, so I'll be replacing with the newer KEF Q series, probably the Q350's. I heard the new Q150's and they wowed me.

KEF R500, R200C, R100, SVS SB2000 sub, NAD T758 receiver, Pro-Ject RPM1 TT w/ Ortofon 2M Red, Bluesound Vault2, Sony BDP-S480 BlueRay player, Samsung UN55JU6500F 4K LED TV, KEF M500 headphones, Sony CDP-CE500 CD changer.
