I haven't really been too satisfied with the sound of my Ref7-II's since I got them last year. I was playing around with my Marantz setting it up to stream music from my computer in the other room, and it sounded different (Better). I then realized the last time I was using REW I found a null with the mains at 100 Hz, so I crossed over at 120 Hz and let the subs fill in the hole. But I only tested it with movies and not music after that. Well, that made a huge difference in my room. So to confirm it, I was playing songs and I would change the crossover from 40Hz, 60Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, 150Hz, and 200Hz. As the crossover dropped towards 40 Hz, the speakers just started loosing there richness and depth. Above 120 Hz and the subs was over powering and made the bass too deep. 120Hz is the magic number for my room and my subs (And my ears). And with the subs to the sides of the floor standers, the bass isn't localized.
Now if I can just figure out why my AV7702 and/or my oppo 103D wont stream a flac file but other formats.

I'm really not expecting much improvement over the 52's, but enough to warrant the price difference in my case, if nothing more than just to know. I do expect a significant upgrade in the surround rear soundstage, and to have a more enveloping surround experience. Can't wait! May need to pop Interstellar again after the install to enjoy sonic nirvana.

Agreed...your rear soundstage should improve dramatically. Intersteller would be a great debut for the rear 52's. At any rate, please do let us know what nirvana is like.

Absolutely! Maybe I should throw in Nevermind and experience double nirvana!

If Mark's (iMagic) link is any indication, it sure sounds that way.

Have a pair of KB-15 that I got on sale during the holidays. Honestly they don't seem very good a lower volumes and get distorted when I play too loud. Not sure if it's my amp causing the problem, but most of the time I find myself using my headphones.
