I am itching to upgrade my speakers. I demoed the B&W 703 and 704 yesterday along with the Monitor Audio GR20. I think I'm going to aim for 703 fronts, 705 rears (haven't heard them yet but I don't see the need for floor standing rears) and probably a HTM7 center although I might go for a HTM2 2nd hand. I will also add a SVS sub at some point. Given that this process is going to take some time as I don't have money for all this right now and the resulting system will have to last me several years I feel I should be completely certain that this is what I want. I would like suggestions for what else I should listen to before going ahead with the 700 series. I imagine that with the amount of money I'm bugeting for this I should have a number of options. I would also like opinions on what electronics I should partner with the new speakers. As much as I love my 2011 I'm really not sure how it will handle the 700 series, particularly the 703s. Assuming I went with the 700s the upgrade path would look something like this. In order: 1. Move 602s to the rear and put the 703s as fronts. 2. Replace the LC60 with the HTM7 or similar. 3. Upgrade the sub to a SVS or similar. 4. Replace the CD player, with a NAD 542 or better. 5. Upgrade electronics to pre/power combo such as Rotel 1066/1075. 6. Replace the rears with 705s. I have to add a DVD player in that list somewhere and a rear projection display based on DLP or LCOS but atm I'm focusing on the audio side. Is my order of upgrades sensible? Will I be left hugely unbalanced at several points? I'm wondering if the Rotel combination would be a worthwhile move. Perhaps I would be better to do it in stages, grabbing a 1095 (giving me significantly more power than my 2011 rather than just a little) first using my 2011 as the pre. (I relalise that this part should be in the amps fora but this is quite a bit off and I don't really want to give the subject it's own thread yet). Thanks for your suggestions.
