I recently replaced an Onkyo txsr605 with a Denon avr791 in anticipation of going 3D, and it seems like the Denon puts out a better sound. Currently it's running Athena Audition bookshelves, center and sub in 7.1. There are refurbished Polk tsi300's on their eBay store for a nice price, along with the older Polk Monitor 60's Series II. Would it be a good idea to change the Athena bookshelf fronts with refurbished tower Polks (and their matching center), and if so, the Tsi's or Monitors? Unfortunately I can't audition them, but do like the Polk sound. I'm just not sure how they all compare. Mike
