Yamaha Rx797 from mission m64is to Klipsh F20s to BW683s
Despite the title I am just beginning to appreciate Hi-Fi. We got rid of our TV so Hi Fi has had a much greater focus.
I had a set of Mission M64is and recently bought a Yamaha RX 797 amp to run them on. I really loved the sound out of these speakers (despite them lacking in the bass department) and the music from them at times (played with 3/4 volume) seemed to just fill the entire room almost to the point where you couldn't tell where the sound was coming from. It was quite trippy and surreal.
Unfortunately being the novice I am I had them biwired but left the bridge on. One of the m64s no longer gos.
I then bought some Klipsh F20s after they sounded great in the shop but took them back as they were too bright and got very tiring to listen too. They had me wanting to turn them down.
I now have a set of B&W 683s on Demo for two weeks (the shop demo speakers) So far they sound awesome really clear, a good balance in all the ranges, heaps of detail. I miss my missions though as I have always been a fan of the warm sound the missions seem to have. The father Inlaw has B&W (can't recall the model) but I always found them too clinical sounding. So I am nervous about the 683s although I have listened to them a lot both loud and ambient and I never ever got tired of listening to them.
On paper they are many steps up from my missions but I can't seem to get the sound to fill the room in quite the same way.
Am I just being pedantic? Don't get me wrong The BWs are awesome and I will probably stick ith them but is there anything else I should look at.
