I don't think you can turn off the video processing even on the latest units, either.

I have owned three versions of the latest HK receivers (AVR 354, 3550 and 3600) and none of them had a 'soft video look'.
I'm one hundred percent wrong then, as well as quite a few reviewers. I can't turn it off on my 247, but that's a much older model.
Thanks for setting me straight!

The question is whether or not it's worth it to upgrade the components or just buy better speakers.
If you're handy and like to tinker though, I agree the drivers are good in these speakers and might be worth the effort.
Are you sure about the crossovers? The major issue with the Primus speakers is the cabinet construction, not the drivers or the crossovers.
There's a whole write-up on Audioholics how to make them better. (Start by cutting off the magnetic shielding on each driver.)
