    bombadil....the 340s throw an even bigger soundstage than the already big soundstage the 170s are capable of. That, and reaching into the lower bass-midbass region is probably the two biggest differences I've noticed.

    Personally, I don't thing the 340 upgrade is stupid. 2-channel redbook CDs bennefit as well as cohesiveness. As mentioned before, the 170s integrate well with the HSU sub. The 340s are as close to seamless in transitioning to the sub as any other speaker set-up I've heard. It's like the 340s reach down to 20Hz. We know they can't so that seamless integration is quite impressive.

    I'm breaking mine in now. So, I expect them to get better sounding.

    Was watching Gladiator (for the upteenth time) last night. Even though the 340s are only a little more efficient on paper than the 170s, it made a significant difference to the "big" sound I was looking for.

    The efficiency is not really an indicator of "big" sound, just how loud a speaker is at a given power input. I think one of the big differences between the 340 and 170 is the dispersion....much wider it seems on the 340, which I think helps create the bugger soundstage.

    hmmmm...forum doesn't have a spell checker....maybe smokey can work on that.

    Then again, if bugger is a real word, that would not have helped me.

    Hey, Curtis. Bugger is a real word if you're British. Can't tell you what it means on these forums or you moderators would have to "bleep" me.
