thanks for sharing your experience. Glad to hear the 60XTs are serving you well in the 2ch music config. They're great!\nThe thread is also around 2.0 music , to replace my existing ML35XTi pair in office..., not home theater.\n\n\nYou're welcome. I overlooked that this was an upgrade for your office 2ch set up, but I hope what I posted might be useful to someone who is reading this thread, and was also curious about home theatre application. I really wish I got to audition Focals as well, so I can compare some other brands for dedicated 2 ch. I did also audition some M&K S150s, KEF LS50s, and Def Techs 450s for my bedroom set up, and ended up with a pair of Motion 15s, since I'm really enjoying the smoothness of the ML sound profile. Of course, they all sound a bit flat without the help of a subwoofer.\nI'm not sure if you're tolerant of pre-owned speakers, but I was able to get put together my LCR trio for about $1,500 open box at a few local Magnolias. I have several in my area so it wasn't tough to piece it all together, selecting the ones without blemishes\/missing grills. Good luck!
