I realize this is a highly subjective question, but I'm curious what people think. I have two HT systems (a 5.1 and a 5.2). One has Aperion L6-IW in wall main speakers (with L6-IC ceiling speakers) and the other has Aperion Verus Grand towers (and Grand bookshelf surrounds). The in-walls are OK, but the Grand towers definitely pick up more detail in some movies. For me, this level of difference probably makes the more expensive Grands worth it (unfortunately, towers really don't fit in the room with the in-wall speakers). I'm not sure if upgrading above the Grand Towers is worth it for HT, however? (I'm not a zillionaire by any stretch of the imagination, but I could probably spend $8,000 or so without getting into seriously hot water with the wifey). The Salk SoundScape 8s (for example) appear to be outstanding speakers (I have not actually heard them yet). I can understand why exceptionally accurate speakers can be worth it if one wants to hear the nuances of, say, I live piano performance by an exceptional artist. But, for movies, so much of the sound is just special effects I find myself wondering if great speakers are worth it? If the sound of some guy getting wacked in a movie with a baseball bat is really just a recording of someone wacking a rib roast in a studio, how much difference does it make if one accurately hears the rib roast? Once again, I realize the answer to "is it worth it?" is subjective, and I'll ultimately need to listen to some speakers and decide for myself. Nevertheless, I'm curious what people's thoughts are on this?
