    I have a pair of B&W DM604's for left/right, would the KEF QX5's be a upgrade from the B&W's, if so, buy how much ?. My B&W's are about 4/5 years old now.

    Try and get a home demo with the rest of your kit and make your mind up after that.

    I've heard the XQ5's for a brief period only, but they were an absolute joy to listen to. Finally - a speaker with transparency, air and detail that can rock 'n roll with gusto and dynamics too (and at hefty volumes too....).

    I'm quite sure you'd find them a stepup in the resolution stakes - but as you know, that alone does not maketh a loudspeaker.

    A quick demo at a dealer will be enough to tell you the difference. I'd say at that price though, a home demo should be offered to be honest, and other alternatives considered: if the Kef's dont suit, you should find a pair that do - although those B&Ws have presence and generosity aplenty, so be careful when upgrading what ain't broken...

    Hiya lads & lasses

    I would like some advice on a home entertainment system to be used for both music and cinema. I have come up with the following system and would like some feed back on weather this is a good choice or not or if u have some other recommendations. From what I have read it seems have had some good reviews.

    Amp – Denon AV2105

    Speakers – KEF Q series

    Front – Q5
    Centre – Q9
    Rear – Q1

    Sub – PSW3000
