B&W 804 D3 v PMC Twenty5 26 v Revel Performa F208

I am upgrading my B&W CM10 S2 speakers to a better pair of floorstanders. I am considering these three sets of speakers:

B&W 804 D3
PMC Twenty5 26
Revel Performa F208

I have not been able to audition anything due to Covid, so am just reading reviews for now.

My other kit is:
Innuos Zen Mk3 Streamer/Server
Audioquest Diamond USB cable into:
Chord Dave DAC
Naim CDX2 CD player
Amps: Naim NAC282/Naim NAP250DR
B&W ASW10CM S2 subwoofer

I liked my existing B&W speakers so thought the B&W 804 D3 was the obvious upgrade path, but have heard others rate the PMC and Revel options.

Any views on these three speaker options - or other recommendations?

My budget would be £7k or so (RRP).

Thanks.

Lots of suggestions on this similar thread - Floorstander recommendation needed...

If you have the power to drive them the I would add the ATC SCM40’s, these are detail monsters but need power to drive them. If you like small group and clean vocals then Sonus Fabre are renown for their mid range and finally Focal and Naim are from the same parent group and the Eutopia range is often paired with Naim.

What kind of improvements you expect? What you do not like in yours B&W CM10 S2?

All the speakers listed have things in common - U-shaped frequency response, I'm pretty sure, you will fill lack of midrange, sharp highs and bass problems.

7K£ is quite valuable sum and you can get somethig better.
