@3402 I've owned the Lores for about 4 years now. I'm driving them with an oppo 103 into a parasound 2100 into a crown xls 2000....by all standards not a very high end front end. The sound the system produces can be described as tonal accuracy pretty good, huge soundstage, very dynamic and overall pretty musical....but definitely more open (less veiled) with the grills off.
They are somewhat placement sensitive and therefore room sensitive and without the correct placement they can sound bright, honky...or in some cases a little hollow. In my room, they "like to be" 36" out from the rear wall...in an equilateral triange...directly facing the listening position or ever so slightly towed out. They are not tilted up or down and they are placed on small throw rugs on ceramic tile on concrete floors.
Do I think that my Lores would sound even better if driven
with better equipment...I suspect the answer is yes and that will
probably be the next thing I try before trying a different loudspeaker.
My suggestion for your consideration ....before buying new electronics...is to mark where you have them and then start moving them and inch at a time starting with distance apart...then out from the walls....then towed in or out...then tilted ever so slightly up or down.
Also, the one risk you face with the decware equipment is if at some point in the future you move on to a less efficient loudspeaker, the decware amplification, as good as it may sound with the Lores, may not have enough power and may also have to be replaced
