    What would be a set of speakers that would be considered an upgrade from my 750 THX's. I want something that's obviously good for home theater, but also has more punch with Stereo cd playback. Thanks.

    These are the speakers I own. Here is my set up:

    B&K AVR 202
    M&K 750 THX Select Speakers
    Pioneer Elite CLD - 79
    Sony DVP-S7000 DVD Player
    Monster Cable HTS 3500
    MSB Gold Link II
    MSB P-1000
    Monarchy DIP Upsampler

    I know these are highly regarded speakers, but I'm looking for an upgrade just to see if there's anything that lights my fire, and to improve my 2-channel cd playback.

    Well im still up so ill responed.
    1st off You have very nice equipment
    Now in 2channel mode u run your sub yes/no?
    So if bass isn't a issue then u should listen to some new Larger front speakers possible M&K to keep the rest matching.Allthough I dont really see anything better on there site. This would allow u to run the smaller M&K's for a side surround thus 7.1 surround. When u upgrade ur reciever if u ever do.
    GO to some decent stereo shops and look for some higher end floor speakers Such as Canton, Dynaudio, Focal, Boston, Swan, Energy Veritas, Jamo, Paradigm, Magplanar and so on.

    Here are a few of the speakers I'm looking at:

    Epos M15's
    Swan 6.1 BC

    A little more pricey:

    Meadowlark Swift, maybe Kestrel 2
    VMPS Ribbon Monitor

    The Epos-m15 probable wont offer much improvment over the M&K If at all. I think u need to stay away from bookself speakers2
    The Swans should offer much improvemnt over the M&K.
    If u Purchase a bookshelf type speaker again simular to the M&K U most likley wont get much of a difference in sound
    Your going to neeed floor standing speakers such as the swans. These should pick up the midbass and lower end better then the M&K.
    Or if u want a more airy sound listen to MAgplaners.
