This is good to hear. I have been thinking about speaker upgrades, but based on some of the posts I read about room treatments, I have been wondering if I would be throwing away money on better speakers in a non-treated room. My past working assumption is that if you make a good choice, then you will benefit from an upgrade even if you might not squeeze the absolute last bit of performance without treatments. But some things I have read made me think that I would be wasting money without treatments. While my space is not ideal, it is a living room with furniture and rugs in it. I would like to think that I can upgrade my speakers and still see improvement without adding bass traps and whatnot, which is never going to fly in my home.
