Skorn vs. Echoing Fury...advice?

Monk
Hello, My Monk uses Skorn with LS. With added bonuses to attack speed he is still only dealing 1.44 attacks per second. I would like to get my attack speed up closer to 2.4 range but I cannot bring myself to buy a multi million dollar EF with LS and a socket which would decrease my DPS by 60k+. Not to mention the off-hand to go along with it. Now I crit pretty high 51.5% but I just dont see the extra attack speed making up for the huge loss of DPS. Am I missing something here?
Thanks
You can never able to use a Skorn at 2.4APS. Maximum IAS on gears:
head 9%IAS via Mempo
chest 9%IAS via Tal
belt 9%IAS via TWH
pants 9%IAS via temperance
bracer 9%IAS via Lacuni
ring 9%IAS x 2
ammy 9%IAS

That is 72%IAS for your 1.0APS Skorn -> 1.72APS
Not trying to get 2.4 APS from Skorn....Trying to figure how to lessen the -60k damage loss that comes with switching to DW...........
Don't. Embrace skorn.

Faster attack speed means more spirit gen, which means more high dmg attacks. Also faster attack speed procs things like LoH and sweeping wind cyclones.
