These are an amazing speaker for the money. Like most great speakers, they sound good with most gear and just keep getting better as you add higher quality electronics upstream.

Any idea if they are much of a step up from the Focus 140s?

The Focus 140s sounded darker to me. I liked the 160s very much and the treble seems a good step better than what you'd get with the similar sized pro series (BM) Dyns and I think a little better than the 140s too but the tonal differences made that a bit harder to fathom. The 160 is a very balanced speaker to my (admittedly somewhat ravaged) ears. The revised tweeters might be recovering some low-level detail too.. which has never been the old Dyn's forte. Few people seem to have anything to complain about in the 160s highs and several note better liveliness than the 140s which some have called softer sounding. I'd have rather called them refined but a little dark. Your mileage may vary! I had little to complain about with either.

Agreed, the 160's are amazing. Buyer will not be disappointed!  I went from pro BM6's to these. I have to say, I'm considering moving up the upgrade tree also. What were you're contenders and what did you end up going with? GLWTS

I ended up being silly and buying the S1.4 LEs which I tried hard with but could not live with because of sibilance - those also have huge bass that is difficult to tame in smaller rooms. I should probably have kept the 160s. 😎 I should note that I'm unusually sensitive to energy in the 6-8k range and this is probably not a general criticism of the beautifully made S1.4LEs either - they just don't have the balanced sound/even tonality that the 160s do. They're a bargain even when they aren't bargain-priced like this!
