It would cost me about $2000 to upgrade all my speakers to the full SEOS kits, and a lot of work on my part to assemble it all together; all of which I'd have to commit to blindly without hearing it. hmmm....
However that would
make a 360-degree field of consistent
sound in movie-mode (and be louder too of course).
What to do, what to do!
Considering/assuming that the SEOS's are even MORE efficient at bringing out the details/flaws in the recordings, and considering that even my current speakers are still limited by my Emo UMC-1, then I really do have to upgrade to the Emo XSP-1 firstly.
I've heard the B&W 800 series on Classe 800 equipment and ever since then I've been trying to replicate that performance for a mere fraction of the cost.
I have tried (in pure bypass mode) several yamaha AVR's, Rotel Pre-Pro's and Emo Pre-Pro's, none of which match the quality of the Classe gear. It's like a +20% quality gap.
So the XSP-1 and XMC-1 is basically my last hope
, and by the online review AP measurements taken, seems to have serious potential of being on-par, or at least near-par.
So that should close the gap of the electronics being the weakest link in my system; at which point who knows what the next weakest link might be. Probably the B&W's inability to go beyond 105db; especially above 3khz.
