I used to have some 3.5R's. They sounded wonderful and ran with a sub. The preamp came with the sub out, so no external xover. I loved the sound. If you listen to Rubber Soul and some of the other Beatles recordings, you can hear people talking in the background. I found that you hear everything that was put down on the recording, everything. I sold and went a different way. I miss that sound and completely understand where you are coming from. The only downside to the Maggie's is that I find them fatiguing. My wee little brain is trying to process everything and has a hard time keeping up. I have sold or given away other speakers in the past and I find that I miss whatever their signature sound is/was. So I have become a speaker accumulator (my wife says I'm hoarding). I would say, do what you're doing, but keep the Legacy, you will find you really miss their sound.
