I popped into my local HIFI shop the other day to demo an Arcam A85 amplifier and compare it with my current Arcam A65+ (using Mission M51 and Marantz CD6000 KI). Well the differences didn't blow me away although it (A85) did sound better. But then I asked if I could demo the Mission 782SE floorstanders, and these did blow me away. Bass nice and tight and the mid was so much clearer, I really loved the sound of these. So to cut a long story short, I've decided to upgrade my speakers and amplifier. I've pretty much decided on the A85 coz of it's flexibility (DVD-Audio module, home cinema capabilites with 3 channel power amp). But now for the speakers. Yes the Mission 782SE did impress me, but I also want to consider other possibilities to demo with. My budget is in between £500 - £1000, it's going with an Arcam A85 and Marantz CD600KI with the possibility of adding an Arcam P85 power amp for biamping/home cinema. My current Mission M51 will be used as rears so something that matches them. Cheers!
