I feel you are robbing yourself if you don't choose the 685 or 683. Not a fan of the 684s or 686s, for the small price difference in the larger speakers in the 600 series. The center is alright, I watched Dark Knight on it and the voices I felt sounded squelched.

90 out of 100 on the Denon reciever is way too loud. When you choose the other volume display option you generally shouldn't go past 0db.
You can get a better subwoofer for $550 right in Anaheim. Pick up a http://www.hsuresearch.com/products/vtf-2mk4.html

Thanks, I was considering 683 anyway.
And that's exactly what I thought about 685 and sub.

So I have 4 options:

1. B&W 683 + HTM61 + 685
2. KEF (Q700 + Q600c + Q100)
About $2,600 (or less)

3. KEF (Q500 + Q200c + Q100)
4. PSB Image (T6 + C5 + B5)
About $2,100 (or less)

Which way to go?
What do you think?

Thanks

If you have heard the B&W and liked them, then I say go for it. They are from Best Buy so if you change your mind you can always return them cool.gif

Well, I heard B&Ws but I didn't hear KEFs and PSBs.
But a lot of people on this forum heard them all. That's why I'm asking.

With B&W I have concerns (center spkr, and this from their specs "Nominal impedance 8Ω (minimum 3.0Ω)" which means they require more power)
