Thanks Big Boss, I did demo the B&WCM8 and must say they were much clearer than the Dali Zensor 7 package. Obviously, its no where near like for like, but got me thinking about demoing the Ikon 6 MK2 package now, as thats within my budget.
Should RS be able to do an exchange do you think?
Yes, they should. Speak to them.

If you can afford it, go for 86
If you cannot afford it, go for 56.
Easiest question to answer. Why are you so confused.
Buy what you can afford. No need for a credit card and debt.
Just pay cash and be happy!!
The OP has already bought the amp.
Demod the Dali Ikon 6 Mk2 package, and was very impressed. My budget is just over £2,000 for speakers, are there any other speaker packages that I should consider around this price range?
Everything seems to be pointing me towards the Dali Ikons, but open to other suggestions before I make the purchase this time.
(Returned the Zensor package 7 package I purchased earlier)
If your speaker budget is around £2000, then I'd recommend demo'ing Monitor Audio RX6 AV12 package. I recently bought the front left and right and will buy the rest as and when I can afford to. I demo'd them with Yamaha recievers [RX-A820 & RX-A1020], they sounded great, and the build quality is superb. I also understand they pair very nicely with Pioneer, they also got a 5 star rating from WHF.
Good luck with the search

Have you heard the Dali Ikon 6 mk2's at all? Just wondering how they compare as I havent heard the monitor Audio range Monitor Audio RX6 AV12, so will go and have a listen.
Has anyone else demod the above speaker packages at all?
No, I haven't heard the Deli Ikon 6 mk2's, so couldn't help you there. I'm sure there are others on here that could help. Just remember to demo before you part with you cash, and go with your ears and not what others say. After all you'll be the one listening to the speakers.
Good luck with the demo
