Unfortunate for me, my home theater is in a 2 story living room that opens to a loft and a kitchen. I started out from college with another brand's gear. Over time it has become apparent that it was time to move up. As a University of Kansas graduate, Martin Logan speakers always got my attention. I never had money for electrostatics. The first speaker to get replaced was my center with a motion 8 center. My first thought was WOW. It was like replacing a standard definition TV with a HD TV. Everything was so clear, and crisp. Now I got the bug, I soon thereafter replaced my sub. The sub was a cheap one that I got in college, it thumped but again when I got the Dynamo 500w, I was wowed. Now we are painting the house and the rear speakers on the wall are white. We are paining to a iron ore type color.... what a great time to get new speakers. These will actually replace some on wall large cubes as my left and right rear. The house had come with 2 baaaad speakers that "had no highs had no low's so they had to call them...." Those are going away, they were the rear surround but I think with these FX's I can live with a 5.1 setup. The last thing on my list is to replace my towers... they aren't that bad, but are getting old and I would like to have all Martin Logan gear, all having the same folded tweeter. Hopefully soon. Now my big room isn't all that bad to watch a DTS movie in.
