B&W 683 + Rotel or B&W CM9 + Denon?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i'm currently running my 683 with a 12 year-old previously top-of-the-line denon avr-5700 receiver with a specced 140 w/ch. i was looking for an incremental upgrade to my STEREO system and was looking for input on the following pairings:

A) set of 683 paired with a rotel rb-1582 200 w/ch class AB amp

or

B) set of better b&w cm9 paired with the existing denon avr-5700

so what do you think would sound better? choice A is a stronger amp making a better overall pairing. choice B is a better pair of speakers (exactly twice the cost of the 683) with an inferior amp. thanks for your input.

I always say go for the speakers....they will make the biggest audible improvement.

I agree, I think the CM9 with the Denon is going to sound better than your existing 683s with the Rotel amp, which may be overkill in any case.
