Well, after a lot of consideration, and a talk with a fine gent at Exceptional AV, I decided to go for the BXs, which arrived with the M-CR603 in Orkney this evening.
Quickly set the system up and popped the XX's latest offering in the CD tray. Despite not taking much care over speaker positioning, I have to say that I am utterly astounded by how good these speakers are, especially once I get beyond low volume; the sound just suddenly become alive. Highly recommended; pity I can't do a comparison with the Zensor 1's.
Thank you for all the advice
A pair of stands next on the shopping list; the BXs deserve better than a bookshelf!
BX2's are indeed excellent speakers Even now after having used BX2's for over two years i still feel astounded by their performance for the price. Fwiw, i have yet to hear better overall speakers up to £400. BX2's simply
Nice one Monitor Audio

good accurate audio monitoring and good sound reproduction to all
I want to fill the room with music. BX2 should be a little more powerfull or not?
BX2's with their clear, crisp, tight, fast, big, bold, dynamic and weighty sound should do the trick
