    Im running a Cambridge 851A what would be a good speaker upgrade and pairing to go for, from the Dali Zensor 7s.
    Im trying to make a short list for store demos.What should I add to my list..£2500 spend, room 15x15 feet
    Already demoed the Opticons and stuck with the Zensors.
    1.Monitor Audio Silver 300 or 500
    2.Dali Rubicon ( if the price is right)

    I'd personally demo

    Focal 926/936
    KEF R500/700 (I think the 900s would be too big)
    MA Gold 200

    I have demoed the MA silver 200 and found the zensors a lot better in my room.... would the golds be a noticeable step up from the silvers ?

    My KEF R300s more than fill a space bigger than that, so I don't think you need to go any bigger than R500s. They will be easier to place than the large R700. A lot depends with whatever speaker you choose is that no floorstander will be happy pushed too far into a corner.
