    I would like some opinions from other B&W owners.I am considering a move from 604-S2 floorstanding model to Nautilus 805 bookshelf model. Would this be a good upgrade path? I am using a Bagend Infra-18 sub for low end. I am a little hesitent to move to the 805's as I use my room 50/50 music and movies. My budget does not allow me to go with the 804's.

    Thanks

    David, I would recommend asking for a test drive at home to perform a comparison. The N805's will image better and have a sweeter midrange but you may miss the low bass from the 604's. It will really depend on how well you can blend your sub with the N805's. BTW, I have N804's, after going through the 600 and CDM series and am partial to the Nautilus line of speakers. [​IMG]
