RE: speakers speakers speakers.

What about Tannot DC6T for £539 in espresso from exceptional-av.

I have Rega RS5s which I have used with Yamaha av amp but they are tricky to position if you can't get the side clearance. I might have gone for the tannoys if they'd been that price then. Colour would have been a better choice for missus.

Good luck at the show.

RE: speakers speakers speakers.

Ideally demo at home, only then will you know how they sound in your home.

Also try Monitor Audio BX5 or BX6 and Q Accoustics 2050i.

I home demoed Rega RS3's and the Tannoy DC6T's when the Tannoys were £699 (RS3's were £780). 

On balance the RS3's matched my amp better and were more musical, but the Tannoys felt like they wanted to party  party time!

Had both sets each over a weekend, this is the best way to demo speakers before you take the plunge.

Ideally you need to demo tham at home, then choose the pair you like the most.
