I have 602s3 bookshelves, and LCR600 center already. I have a Marantz SR7002 in transit. I can use the B&Ws to trade and upgrade to 705s or I can order a Rocket setup. I was planning on RS 850 or RS 760 for front, RSC 200 for center, and RS 250 mk II for rear. I can't fit dipole speakers for rear.
I don't want to throw good money after bad. The Large rockets look like they would be great, but I'm concerned about the aluminum drivers. They often have strong resonances which can hurt music but are fine with HT. These speakers need to do double duty for music an HT. Also, I can't demo the rockets and I have to wait on them. By the time I can get them, the trade-in won't work.
Also, I need a second setup as well for a lesser used room. Would you:
Trade the old 600s for new 600s and get rockets for prmary room?
Trade old 600s for 700s and get rockets for primary room?
Trade old 600s for 700s and get new 600s for 2ndary room?
Keep old 600s as new ones aren't much better and get rockets for primary room?
Go with something else in primary room like Axiom, Ascend, triad, RBH, etc., all of which I haven't heard?
BTW, I've listened to Martin Logan, Vienna Acoustics, Klipsch, Paradigm, Focal, and Def Tech speakers and lIke the sound of the B&Ws more. I'm also getting a sub for both setups so don't worry too much about not enough bass with whatever. I'm concerned I might need a seperate amp to power the bigger rocket towers also.
Thanks for any input.
