Choosing the right high end (ish) speakers for movies and music
Dear What Hi-Fi,
This isn't the first time of asking and you've been so helpful in the past weeks. I have a dilema and it relates to speakers! Too many choices and no idea!
My current setup:
Samsung PS50Q97HDX Plasma
Marantz DV7001 DVD Player (on the way)
Denon AVC A10SE Multichannel Surrond Amp (2001)
And here are the speaker choices:
B&W 600 series: 2x684 1xHTM62 Centre 2x686 rears
B&W CM Series: 2xCM7 1xCM Centre 2xCM1 rears
DALI Ikon 6 5.1 Set up.
In both B&W set ups I was seriously considering leaving off the Sub altogether until I can afford to add a PV1 or such like if it even needs it.
Can you help. It's not really a question of money as all the combos are batting around the £2000 mark. Should I investigate the B&W route alongside the DALI? The problem is that no retailer seems to be stocking the DALI in house and so I can't have a listen. Have you heard the B&W CM series? Are they worth the money over the new 600 series? Is the DALI Ikon range a better bet?
80% DVD movies, 20% music to. Really appreciate your advice as always!
