Ok, I thought I'd start a new thread about this. I'm still weighing up my options (and my budget) and I'm now thinking about auditioning the Arcam FMJ P7 power amp with a Rotel 1066 processer. The Rotel is £2k cheaper than the AV8 processor and that £2k can go towards buying a new set of speakers. so I'm thinking of listening to the following: Arcam P7 Rotel RSP 1066 B&W Nautilus 805 fronts B&W Nautilus HTM2 centre B&W CDM SNT rears Haven't decided on which sub yet, any ideas??? I really want a 7 channel amp so I can either bi-amp the front channels or use the extra two channels for some outdoor speakers. Also I love the Arcam sound. what worries me though is would this paired with my Arcam DV27 sound good with music? At the moment I love the sound of my system with music, nice tight bass, detailed midrange and a nice treble (I have an AVR100 bi-amped with an Alpha 10P3). what I don't want is something that is going to sound harsh and boomy. I've heard that the B&W speakers can be a bit forward, but is that just the cheaper speakers in the range? I was also considering KEF but I'm not sure of prices or how big the centre speakers are (it must fit in my cabinet, putting it on top of the tv isn't an option). So any suggestions? I'm hoping to keep the power amp and then possibly upgrade the processor at a later date (much later).
