How old is too old?
'When I can't hear the differance between my TV speakers and my systems speakers. As long as I can I will continue on.'My sentiments exactly!! I don't know if I can hear 20k, if I ever did, But I don't think I am missing anything put on CDs. 
First foray into separate 2-channel amp, 200wpc
'They can have just as much influence on the final sound as an amp, in my experience.'Save the phono amp, enlightened me as to how.BTW, your statement is absolutely correct. Your point is just wrong.

'chalk it up as my hearing is not what it once was.'Have you ever heard a difference? When you were much younger with good hearing? Your hearing is probably just fine. I am 68, and hear as well as ever. I don't think a 'young'german shepard can he...

'I still fine in humorous that after spending mega-bucks, $400 went from pretty good to real good.'Don't see / understand the humor. I would want a refund of my mega bucks. Something is wrong. A piece of wire should not change a mega buck system (... 
Black Gospel With Good Sound
Beware of these MASS CHOIRS, They are to Gospel, what smooth Jazz, is to real Jazz.

I was speaking of the XPA-2. should be able to drive any speaker. When I get my new speakers, I plan to get the xpa-2 and use my harman kardon hk-3490 as the pre.

get the Emotiva used. The big one. The pre amp section of your receiver will just be a switch box and volume control, unless you listen to LPs.

Seeking advice on how to improve my system
with your components, there is nothing to do! Enjoy it. Maybe moving the speakers will change the sound, which should satify the urge to do something. 
These new POLK LSiM's look tempting
'Polk makes only 15 pairs a month of the 707's'I notice they are hard to find in stock. Will the production rate increase in the future? Thanks for all the info. I hope they are a great success. Can't wait for the reviews to come in. 
How best to upgrade
Reposition your speakers, listen for a few weeks, then reposition them again, listen again and so on and on....... until you get it like you want it. 
These new POLK LSiM's look tempting
'It looks like Polk not only hit a home run with the LSiM's, but hit a grand slam.'Not the first grand slam for Polk. They just don't get the credit on this forum. I fear, the price doubled for the LSi15 replacement, the LSiM 705, in part due to t... 
Speaker cable vibration?
I am surprised no one has claimed to be able to hear the little strings vibrating. The ones in string theory. Or perhaps hear stars going supernova. One member recently suggested I see a psychiatrist. I did, and she said after the lobotomy is done... 
Speaker cable vibration?
'But hundreds,dare I say thousands, will claim they can!!!!'True, and under the rules of high-end audio, their claims must be respected. To do otherwise leaves you open to the charge of being 'an inexperienced fool'. Trust me, I know from experien...
