Focal Aria 926 an upgrade over Monitor Audio RX6?

I love my MAs but want something with a little more umph for Rock. I am powering them with a Yamaha RX-A2070 AVR. Will I get a noticeable increase in sound quality and performance with the Focals?

did you check out Thomas's video's?



He actually had monitor audio RS6 (not sure how those compare to the RX6)

Also adding a pair of external amplifiers like the outlaw model 2200 monoblock's may give you the extra "oomph" you're looking for. Or a class D amp like the Crown XLS2002 or 2502,

Speakers: KEF Q100, Q300, Q750, Q650C, Q50a / Fluance Signature Series/ DCM TP160S-CH Subwoofers: Outlaw Ultra X12 (x2) / BIC H100-IIReceiver: Denon AVR-X4500H, AVR-X1400H Integrated Amplifier: Yamaha A-S501/ Fosi Audio TPA3116 mini amp Extras: MiniDSP Umik-1 Amplifier: Emotiva BasX-A300 Next Speakers: Triangle BR03, Revel Concerta2 M16, KEF LS50, Dynaudio Emit M20, Buchardt S400, Triangle Comet ez, KEF R3
