I'm new in here and I wanted to ask some questions to some experts here.
Last year I purchased 2 B&W 685 speakers with a marantz cr-603. I'm very happy with it and it sounds very well. But I want to upgrade my setup with a surround receiver so I can enjoy my movies.
So I was thinking to buy a new surround receiver (maybe the marantz sr6008 ) and 2 new front speakers. The new speakers will be used as front speakers(The old B&W 685's will be used as rear speakers.) I had my thoughts on some floorstanders because i miss some "thrill" and "bass"...
1) Therefore I would like to ask which speakers sound realy great for the price. So I'm looking for 2 new front speakers which deliver more bass/punch, and which will match a marantz sr6008 and the combination of the B&W's 685 as rear speakers. I've already listened to the B&W 684 but I didn't liked them that much.
2) And one last (maybe dumb) question: will my speakers sound better with the marantz sr6008 receiver instead of the marantz micro cr603 system?
The room is about 5x10 meters and I'm willing to pay max. 700 dollar/euro/speaker.
Any feedback will be welcome!
