    I'm currently running Infinity Entra Three's as Fronts, Entra Center Two as Center, Enter Three's as Surrounds, Entra Point Five's as Surround Backs and Entra Sub Two.

    Question - Would Athena's be a good upgrade? If so which Athena's.

    Or, could you suggest another speaker line in this price range?

    Thanks,

    You need to define your reasons for wanting to upgrade.

    I use to have (actually still do, packed in a closet) the point five setup with the entra center and sub. I found them to be decent quality speakers. After a while though, they were just too bright for me (I couldnt crank them up without my ears ringing all day).

    I would not have picked Athenas for an upgrade (if you could call it that). From what I heard, they were just as bright, and maybe not as well built (not a knock on Athena, the Infinities were a good quality).

    I think the biggest problem with the Athena line is the center channel. If you are looking at something like the AS-f2s across the front they will blow you mind for the $.

    The story goes that a few people have used the b1 and b2 bookshelfs as center channel and said it they sounded better.

    Smells like a lateral move to me. And I own the Athenas. Save your pennies for a bigger upgrade...I don't think this move will accomplish much.
