The story is thus, I have had 2 Energy RC70's that I really like - my rears and center are connoisseur series and cant keep up. I've been looking for an energy rc-lrc, and rc-10(or rc-r's) with no success. Ive started toying with the idea on upgrading starting with the centers and rears? I am considering monitor audio silvers or focal arias. Would starting with a center and rears overpower or change the balance in comparison to the RC-70's? I haven't had a chance to demo either the silvers or the arias. Im driving everything with a Yamaha aventage (Ill likely replace that soon as well, leaning towards a denon avr3400 or 4400. My use is daily and it includes music and home theater and tv. The RC70's do a pretty good job with both music and theater but the connoisseurs are muddy. Any thoughts and suggestions are appreciated!
