I am thinking of upgrading my aging EPOS ES30s, their original RRP was £2500 although I paid £1750 for them ex-demo back in 2000 ish. There is nothing wrong with the speakers in fact I really like them, just want more detail, slam and bass extension...a better speaker. I had ES14s before them and I like the EPOS sound.
Am looking at a pair of used PMC FB1i's which also retail for around £2500 but I wonder whether they will actually be a worthwhile upgrade. The passage of time almost certainly means you get more for your money these days, but £2500 in 2000 is quite a bit more than the PMCs cost new today.
The alternative is to save for a circa £5k pair of speakers e.g. Fact.8, Cardea C30 etc. grateful for any advice, thoughts or ideas. This is front ended with a Wadia 861 and Muse Model Three Hunderd monoblocks.
