speakers compatibility

Hey guys!

I need some advice...

My gear at the moment is:

Pioneer LX57
Pioneer BDP450
Wharfedale Evo (first gen) 30's + Centre + 8's
JBL E150 sub
(Power Amp coming soon, but nor really required at the moment)

Room is a dedicated cave/media room about 5x3m and there is some acoustic treatment (bass traps)

Use: 60% HT / 40% Music ( I love my music)

Now the question.

There is a pair of Wharfedale Opus 2 for sale in a local auction website and it may go for a very competitive price. I love the brand (awesome value for money, especially second hand). I love my music, mainly played in PureDirect stereo mode (no subwoofer on)

Do you think the Opus would be a big improvement over the Evo?
How do you think it would match the tonality if the other speakers when in HT duties? Can you actually tell the difference?

The Opus are a beautiful piano black and I'm drooling over them since I saw the listing... But I'd like to make an informed decision.

Do they really need that much space to breath? Would the bass be too much/overpowering?

Looking forward to your input!

Thank you!!!!!

I would try posting in the Wharfedale Owner's Thread and see what they think.
