    Hello all

    I have a surround system comprising a pair of B&W 603S3 (Front), MS 905C (Centre) and 2 x pairs MS 903S (Surround and Surround Back). Pio AX5i drives speakers.

    I have been contemplating replacing the centre for a B&W LCR600, which I can get for about £300.

    However, I could get a pair of MS906 or 908 and keep the centre.

    What should I do? Are the B&W 603s better than the 908s?

    Some advice would be appreciated. System is used mainly for movies with occaisional CD playback.

    IMHO I would say you would be better off replacing the MS905c with the LRC600 and keep the B&W over getting MS.

    Keep what you've got mate and buy a subwoofer with your (£300) budget.

    There are plenty of good subs in that price bracket. The MS309 and BKXLS for example. Check the forum.

    A sub will certainly 'liven' up the movies :)

    I have'nt heard the b&w speakers but judging by their reviews they are excellent. I have the MS Avant 906 fronts and 905 centre, and are well happy with them, great speakers. But I cant compare them to b&w as I havent heard them. The 906 are slightly less in-your-face than the 908 to look at. As you have a seperate sub I would stick to the 906.

    If you decide to change to a full b&w setup, let me know if you are interested in selling your rear 903s (preferably in maple finish) as I need a pair to complete my system. Thanks.

    I don't think you will go far wrong with either make, they are both superb.
