I've been seriously reconsidering my near-future speaker purchase. I had planned, originally, to modestly upgrade to Energy XL series speakers. However, with some talk of Energy bringing back the C line speakers, I decided to hold off. While at an audio shop recently, I had the privelege of demo-ing a pair of Eminent flat panel speakers. Man, was I impressed. The clarity of sound was magnificent. My future speaker upgrade will probably look like this: Eminent LFT-VIII mains Eminent LFT-12 center Rear speaker of my choice to come later (probably Audes) SVS 16-46cs w/ S700 amp To run the mains, I've decided to go with a KR brand tube-based amp. I will use my Denon 3802 to power the center and future rears. I currently have the 3802. My next purchase will (probably) be the LFT-VIIIs with the KR amp ($3500 total). I've decided to purchase things one step at a time, and although it is extremely painful to do it this way, it seems to put my at an advantage financially. I'd prefer to purchase higher-end equipment slowly than mid-level equipment quickly. Anyone have any thoughts on the selections?
