    If you think his electronics feeding them are awesome, you should check out the upgrades he has done to the speakers themselves.

    I have not heard the Focals, but I have heard the LSiM 707 and the B&W 802. I didn't hear anything during either audition that would make me want to replace my modified 1.2TLs.

    I auditioned B&W 800Ds, Nola Baby Grand References, and Wilson Maxx 3s and decided to stick with my SDA SRS1.2s, which have not even been TL'd -- leave aside all the additional mod's that DK has done on his TLs. They perhaps delivered better sound quality in their sweet spots, but they did not fill the room as the SDA SRSs do.

    I also auditioned Nola Grand References (four huge towers), now selling for $300K, and Wilson Alexandrias, both of which would have brought a major SQ improvement; however, aside from their prohibitive prices, I wouldn't have a place to put them!

    That's a very good news to me the SRS sound better than 707, 800, 802 and Wilson in your ears because I have one pair SRS early model paid $500 at a pawn shop Oklahoma city 7-8 years ago!... I need to rebuilt my X-over because tweeters are too loud about 5-6db and sda drivers (now hear percing sometimes) by 3db (stereo drivers are good), but I bi-amp them with a EV P1200 and EV P1202 wired to a SHERWOOD P965..... The EV power amp sound better than CARVER PM700, PM1400, and NAD 2400thx. I believe I go to keep my SRS all my life now!

    part of the problem you are having may be caused by bi-amping the early ones.
    HT Setup... Pioneer Elite SC-37, Polk Audio SDA-SRS 1.2TL's , Oppo BDP 93

    NOPE!..It's when I use only one amp the tweeter are too loud, I bi-amp them now and tame the hi-frequency by 6db.... btw, I also used a DCX2496 digital X-over! big mistake! the processor in the DCX is not enough sensitive and don't take all low level (in the restaurant scene of Sherlock-Holmes, the "ambiance", dish, fork,spoon, dialogue noise was "erased" by 20-25%.... In some rain (water drop) scene also!....Just my $0.02

    I put the one-year follow up report in its own tread to make it easier to find.

    Get your ear on the Alexia if you can. I'd be interested in how you think they compare to the Alexandria.

    I had to make an appointment with a dealer in Manhattan to audition the Maxx 3s a couple of years ago, and my wife, daughter and I listened to the Alexandrias after spending an hour or so with the Maxx 3s. I'd love to hear the Alexias, but doubt I'll go to the trouble to do it unless something dramatic happens in my listening life!

    If I do, I'll post impressions.
