I currently have B&W 803 Nautilus speakers. I'm running them in an analog only setup with a Primaluna Dialogue Premium HP tube integrated amp. It sounds great! I've been thinking about upgrading my speakers, and have seen a set of 804D3 at a reasonable price.
Do you think this is a step up? Or, because of the smaller cabinet, will I miss the bass? My room is pretty large. I"m thinking the new D3s will have better imaging and a better overall presentation. But, I'm worried that they will be low on bass, compared to the larger 803s. Am I crazy for considering it? Going to the 803D3 is not in the budget.
Also, the Primaluna runs about 90 WPC, but with great power supplies. Plenty of power for the 803s. Will I need more power to run the 804D3?
