You will be happy I think. I've been using Infinity RS-5 Towers and CC-3 center for years. There is no comparison as the eD blows them away (in my opinion). I've only performed about an hour or two of testing, but so far, I am amazed at the sound.
I've tried the Ascend 340SEs in my room as well. My friend just purchased them. I've been reading on them for over a year and was anxious to try them out in MY room with MY equipment. I was VERY pleased with the Ascends. Then, I read this thread about eD and noticed the cost was much lower than Ascends, and free shipping!!!! NICE!! I have yet to read one bad thing about the eD speakers. Granted, not as many posts about eD as Ascends, but I also looked at forum linked to eD, which had great information.
I found the Ascends to be more "Harsh" than the eD speakers. They weren't necessarily "Harsh", but they did lean that way more than the eD speakers. The eD speakers, at least from what I've heard so far, are not harsh. The Center Channel produced incredible dialogue I've NEVER heard from my Infinity Center (that cost over 2x of the eD center). The Ascends are great, and I really enjoyed them, but the eD are as good if not better to my ears. Definitely not worse. So, for the money, I'm very glad I purchased eD and would recommend them to anyone. Fast shipping, and packaged better than anything I've ever ordered online or purchased from a store.
