     Looking for ideas as to what would be an improvement over my mirage omni60 bookshelf speakers. I am trying out a pair of focal chorus 806v speakers from music direct. So far there not really much of an improvement, a little bit, but not much, maybe because there new yet, they need some time to...

    I currently have a t.v. setup in my living room above the fireplace with a pair of Focal 836v beside it. After thinking about how I can achieve surround sound and how big a television I can fit above my fireplace I came to the conclusion that the space was terrible for achieving good immersion...

    I have Focal 836 mains that are driven by an Emotiva XPA-2, medium sized Polk center channel, 2 Polk rears, plus a 12" Velodyne sub. 70% Music, 30% Movies. It is time to finally retire the Denon 3805 that I bought new in 2005. She has served me well. Besides being outdated, my only complaint...

    My father in law asked me to pick out a new complete 5.1 HT system for him. He gave me a $2000 budget. I am partial to Polk speakers and Yamaha receiver, but only because that is all I have ever had. He really likes how my setup sounds, so not sure if I should stick with what what he has heard...

    I heard the Sierra towers courtesy Holt (and that was months ago) and I am going to listen to the 836w hopefully this week. Now as much as I would love to listen to these things at reference levels, I have a 17 month old and my booming home theater days are def put on hold. So I would say now...

    After some careful consideration, we have decided to pick up Focal, previously called JM Lab. I know their Utopias are considered a reference speaker worldwide.
