    I am thinking of one of the above as the speakers I have are quite large.
    how do they compare.
    If I get the B & Ws I will use my rel Q150 sub

    You're kidding right?

    You are thinking if replacing Celestion A speaker system with Eggs/VM's?

    Don't let the people with the Plasma's be fooling you... the sound quality of your Celestion's blows the Eggs, B&W VM, Gallo Micro, Bose into the dustbin. Really.

    Just because something is trendy & lifestyle doesn't mean it's good.

    Keep what you got. If I had your system I would consider a subwoofer (look at something else rather than the Q150E) or more DVD's. Or a holiday.

    did consider selling the pioneer amp and getting a rotel 1066 but cant find one at the moment, I take it that would be more worthwhile

    Nah not really (IMO) If you really want to move into pre-power I would checkout the upper end processors- Tag AV32, Lexicon DC-2/MC-2/MC-8\/MC-12, Meridian, etc.

    No doubt soundog will disagree.

    How much are the TAGs
    I have just purchased a Rotel power amp and added it to the pionner 2011 and it has made a difference and definately given me a fuller sound. It doesnt feel as if there is any strain on the amp now

    Sec/hand 5.1 Tag AV32 with 96Khz DAC's are around £1200-£1300.

    ~£1800 for sec/hand 7.1 with 192khz DAC's

    ~£4K for a brand new dual processor, 7.1.

    The two most worthwhile improvements to your system would be in upgrading the TV to a projector and replacing your subwoofer.

    I am sure that you have already thought about a projector and dismissed it for a variety of reasons, and a subwoofer to replace your Q150 will of necessity be larger so that may not fit in domestically.

    Perhaps Nathan was right and any other "upgrading" might just be for the sake of it without reaping significant benefits.
