Infinity Beta 20's as main
Beta 10's as surround
Beta C360 for center
HSU VTF-15H sub



Has anyone gone from the Beta's to HTD Level 3, Chane A1.4, ELAC's, etc, aka, something in the $3-400 range for a pair of bookshelf speakers?


When I watch at loud volumes, the sound gets a bit harsh in my room. I have a Denon and am using MultiEQ with high frequency roll off 2 to try and combat this. My room also isn't treated as well as I would like.


I'm guessing I should invest in the room treatments first and go from there, but was just curious if anyone had made the transition I'm looking into.

Those Betas are really fine speakers, designed using Harman's scientific methods. I think they'd be difficult to beat at that price point. You might also consider the Infinity Reference R162, an improvement over the Beta and often on sale for a ridiculous price. But I agree that your room should come first, especially if it has a lot of hard surfaces.

I thought that might be the case, thanks for the reply. I guess that means I can spend that money on some treatments and buttkickers.


I desperately need run some sweeps with REW and figure out how much treatment to do and also maybe re-do the sub crawl since I've moved stuff around. Of course when I finally get some free time, I just want to utilize my setup.


Anyway, thanks again.

Lol, I’ll get them up when I can. I’m a big KEF guy too. I actually have some mid 90s Reference 2s too that I’m not using. I just picked up the 104/2s and swapped them out.

I've been keeping an eye open for a pair of Reference 2 like that, for my guest room. I have floor-standing Hafler 300's there now but they never made a center speaker. I picked up a Reference Model 100 center and it sounds so good I'd like to replace the Haflers and gift them to someone.

I used a Reference 100 with them too until I picked up a 200C. Using that with the 104/2s now until I stumble on to a 650C deal. I'm actually going to be selling the Reference 2s when I get around to it. I have too many pairs of speakers now and the wife is complaining. I've got the boxes and everything for them...rosetta burr...damn sexy speakers.

Me? Nope, have never had a projector. You may be mixing me up with someone else. Room gets far too much ambient light for a projector to work out.
