Wow your using Luna's as mains, how's that working out? How's the sound from those babies? What center do you have? I'm thinking of in the future going up Sierra 2s for mains and center, and Luna's for surrounds.

I'm not using Luna's as mains in my HT setup. I have a pair I use for my desktop. I picking up the 1s compliment the LCR Sierra 2s I just picked up. With that being said, the Luna's paired with a L12 are freaking awesome in my desktop setup.

Ok, I caved. I had emailed Ascend asking if they had any espresso Luna cabinets left. Well, Dave replied they did so I called this afternoon and upgraded my order to Luna's. Pray for me. It's possible by this time next week my wife may have castrated me. 😄

I know the feeling, we all get that in this hobby. If I have another box with speakers show up at the door I will probably be living in that box with the speakers!

The trick for me is to try to build in pieces. Limit the size of any individual purchase, and space them out. I have this long list of planned upgrades in (relatively) small pieces. Next up is a new HT sub, probably next summer. That'll be slightly tricky as space is an issue, but I think a Rythmik L12 should do the trick.

Upgrading the HT mains to Sierra towers isn't on the list for while—that's gonna be a really hard sell since that'll be $2k all in one hit. Ugh.

Well, I guess be happy she doesn't cut off your ears. Now that would be ironic.

I agree that's how I bought my current home theater. I bought 2 speakers at a time, surrounds first, then mains and finally center and then sub. Took about a year to do that. I had other speakers I was replacing as I went along so I always had a 5.1 system, just replaced each part in steps as you suggested. I have to say the speakers I have not really sound awesome, really really great. Just looking to the future and taking a very large leap up in sound quality.
