Yes it would be an upgrade. You do know that Dynaudio is discontinuing the passive Focus line but keeping the active XD's going

As you move up the Dynaudio line up there is more refinement. The Focus 160 will be a bit punchier and tipped up in the highs vs Contour or Confidence. Some will say the Contour and Confidence will sound a bit laid back in comparison.
Me personally I like the punchier tipped up sound for about an hour or so (wow factor). The longer I listen to them the more I dislike them. Again my opinion. I owned the C1 and later the C1 sig's for several years. To me they sound more natural and balanced.
Thx freediver. Regarding the amplifier, can you make any suggestions? Im using an Emotiva xpa 3 for the fronts. I have a 5.1 systems with Monitor gx 100s, a gx 350 center and a pair of gx50s in back with those Dyn Audience 52 se for a change of pace. I recently bought a Rega 6 TT with an Ortofon Black mm and Ive heard that you should keep the analogue seperate. I know that you either love or hate Emotiva, so what would be a good choice for an integrated or power stereo amp that would sound better than the Emo? I am using a Marantz 7701 pre/pro. Thx
