That your speakers is inferior to the other pair of speaker she went listen with you at a friend's place?

Do you know the brand and model of the speakers you were listening to?

I have an affinity for French speakers but have never heard any Triangles. I have heard M60's and they are great great great.

A suggestion that involves a lot of work. Bring your 60's over to your friends house. Maybe you actually like the sound of his room better.

Look at the cost. These are 1,895 euros (1 euro = 1.36095 usd), or $2,579 US dollars. Quite a bit more than $1,040 for an M60.

Wid beat me to it.

Not that price has a direct correlation to sound quality. But that's what you tell you wife. "Those cost almost 3 times as much as the ones we have now."

Then you play with placement in your room, and see if you can pull out a little more performance from your current speakers. Because that's where the majority of the gain will be had, not in tossing more money in the speakers themselves.
