Please guys, help me here.

I've heard the 683's and they sound awesome and was gonna get them, but the local dealer said I should try the Quad 22L's. I cant think that they could be better since B&W have a very sientific approach to developing products.

I'm getting a Marantz SA7001 player and have got the SR8500 amp. I know its not a dedicated stereo amp but I have'nt got the cash to have to dedicated systems. I might get a power amp in a year or two's time.

In time i will upgrade the amp. I dont see the point in getting smaller speakers and in a years time after the amps been upgraded, getting bigger speakers again. What is the ratios these days for spending on equipment. I know years back it was 2/3 of your total amount should be spend on speakers but I've now heard that it should be 1/3. Is this correct?
