    thinking of going with the b&w 685 with denon 1910 when it comes out, I have a kef psw 1000 sub

    I will build the rest of the system probably with a b&w center and maybe some kef rears,

    main concern is, are the denon 1910, psw 1000 and 685's a good match, i'll sort the rest out later

    sources are sky hd, xbox 360 elite, wii, pioneer DVD, but will probably upgrade to a blu ray player, and my ipod

    possible future sourced - marantz sacd, pro-ject debut 3 turntable,

    i know the connections are there, just wondering on the balance between the speakers :)

    i have listened to the 685's but not with an AV amp, I am waiting to hear them with a 1909 /1910, i havn't trialed the kef iq30's yet which are my other choice (prefer the look)

    my other choice for an av amp would be the sony dn1000

    i am aware these amps arnt out yet, but would assume similarities to be very close to the 1909 and the 2400es

    The Sony wont be the best match for the B&W speakers. If you opt for the Sony receiver, the KEF speakers would be a better match, either that or something by Tannoy.

    I'd personally prefer the Denon and B&W combo.

    Try and get a demo of the amp you want in your house. Then you can see if it is a match that you like.
