Summary: Just wanted to add a new point of view do to direct comper to B&W 805s. I had this for a week review in my home setup that consist of the Rotel: rc1580 rb1582 rcd1520 and after more then 40 cd's listening from classical to jazz and prog rock, I'v came to understand that the 805s were more natural sounding and smooth but: that was unti the music got complex in the classical arena. the 805s was slow to react to smooth and details of microdynamics were loss.
Summary: as flamenco guitar player ( hobby ) that spending time is a recordong studio and listening to all kind of musik ( classical,flamenco,prog rock,jazz,bluz ) I was never saticfy from the results of classical music via my many many systems at home. I turne to look at the solutions that were use in the studio and other studio's in the world and notice that no mater what speaker were use the amplification for was what look like overkill.
Summary: Mycket detaljrikt ljud, gick till dessa från ett par Bose 301 vilket så klart var ett mycket stort lyft i ljudkvalitén. Inte lika tight bas som tidigare högtalare som höll mera PA karaktär, men det är inte därför jag köpte dessa. Känns som att de går att fixa till basen rätt mycket om man leker runt lite med inställningarna i stärkaren samt kanske väl placerade ljuddämpningsplattor i rummet.
