    I have been in the market for separates for the last several months, so I have done quite a bit of shopping, but I was hoping that someone out there could provide me some feedback on how B&K components sound with B&W speakers.

    None of my local shops sell both B&W and B&K. The speakers the amps will be pushing are:

    Mains - DM604 S3
    Center - LCR600 S3
    Surr(4) - DM601 S3
    Sub - SVS PC+ 20/39

    Any input on the sound quality of this combination would be greatly appreciated....and, if anyone knows of a shop in the Dallas, TX area that sells both of these brands, let me know.

    I run a Ref 50 and Earthquake Cinenova Grande 5 channel amp with B&W speakers. My current setup is:

    HTM1 Center Channel
    Matrix 805's Left & Right
    Some NHT Dipoles as surrounds.

    I really like this setup, the speakers have never sounded better. However I intend to upgrade to Nautilus 804s and use the 805s as my surrounds. Due to room size I will stay with a 5.1 system. Personally I think the Ref 50 does a fine job with B&Ws although I don't have experience with the B&Ws you are looking at.
