Here are a couple of upgrade paths that I am considering: Trade back B&W603s & LCR6 ($1,180 trade value) for the following: CDM 7NT - $2000 CDM CNT - $600 Balance - $1420 Trade back B&W603s & LCR6 ($1,280 trade value) for the following: Nautilus 805s - $2000 Nautilus HTM2 - $1000 Balance - $1720 (would need to buy stands as well) I will be keeping the following equipment: B&W601s for surrounds Yamaha RXV-1200 receiver Adire Rava sub Will the 601s be okay for surrounds with the 805s or CDM7s? How much power will be needed for the 805s verses the 7s? I would like to add a power amp in a year or two. I am thinking about adding a Rotel RMB1075. The CDM 1s are not an option because my dealer requires that the speaker you are trading for be twice as much as the speaker you are trading. After listening yesterday, I liked the CDM 1s almost as much as the 7s when the 1s were accompanied by a sub. The 1s paired with an HGS18 and RMB1075 were really nice. The 7s with the HGS18/Rotel combo were really amazing as well. I really need to give the 805s and HTM2 a listening session next weekend as I have not had a chance to listen to them yet. I am assuming that they will be a significant step up from the 1s but I really need to listen. Opinions please!!!
