Big upgrade. If this is for home theater, you have to include the cost of an LC2 with the L880's, as the LC1 center is not up to par. Prices vary wildly, I think the L series stuff is great if you can get it on the low end, not a very good deal at normal retail prices.
If this is for 2ch only, you might also want to consider ES lineup as a more budget friendly solution. ES90's are available at a much lower price.
There is also the new Studio series, which has not gotten a lot of feedback yet, probably because they are oddly styled.
If you are not in a big hurry I would start watching CL or other local sources of used gear. Towers take a big hit on resale. The original studio series, L series, E series, up to the current L series would all be nice upgrades.
