What happened to the 170s? Why the switch back?

What price range are you looking at? What about the Chane's A1.5 ? A real treat would be Chane's A2.4

i was just messing around with the 170's , i use them as centers and like them..they are a bit too much for my room set up (for music) , they come off as forward..chane might be a good fit , but i'm looking a bit higher end ..that would be a more sideways move i think.. i was thinking sierra 1, nht c3 as a start..maybe ls 50 , if i can find a deal .. maybe dynaudio ...

Check out the RSL CG5 speakers
that's a decent starting point.. i just want to avoid anything resembling shouty..a bit bright doesn't phase me..

I don鈥檛 know if you would consider this an upgrade but this is what I did: B1 to JBL Studio 530.

I鈥檓 enjoying the switch. YMMV
i kinda think that might be pretty good too .. i was even considering the kef q150's because i like the q100's so much..:)

Chane A5.4?

If you want to stick to bookshelf speakers, Totem Rainmaker:

no chane for me .. i consider them a sideways move.. and other factors i won't go into.. totem sounds like an idea .. and yes , books only right now.. thanks...edit.. just saw the totem measurements , looks too treble heavy for my taste.. i'm more into smooth , that rising treble from about 5k hz scares me a bit..

90掳 dispersion vs 180掳 on the Ascends.

I think they could be the one....

But we shall see what you end up with :)

JBL 530 or KEF Q150 would be my thinking as well. Preference for the former if you prefer neutrality yet with detail.

That could also be an interesting choice.

my gosh you're picky. I wanted a 9 girl , brunette, rich, drives a lambo, big boobs, fit, feeds me grapes every night, goes to liquor store to buy me beer and Tequila....

You know what I got?

6 who is broke, worked at a strip club, smokes like a chimney, cusses, no boobs, flat rear end, I have to rub her feet, and I have to drive to the liquor store to get MY own alcohol

See where I'm going here?? :D
