Luckily the guy at the store is quite knowledgeable and I started asking him some questions about some of the cheaper counterparts in the store, started listening to them and WOW, the B&W 683 Floorstanders sound amazing. The sound so natural and their imaging is absolutely amazing. I asked them what they were hooked up too and they were just hooked up to a small Marantz 50W stereo amp/media player.
I have decided I WILL be getting these. Won't be for a few months, but I just cannot ignore them after hearing them, price is not that bad too, its on par with what online retailers sell them for, told him if I came in with $X amount in cash if he would sell them to me, and he said for that their yours.
Edit: Also curious as to what you guys would reccomend for the center. I hear the "matched" center has a very narrow sweet spot and differeny dynamics from left to right due to the driver change. Using a 685 is out of the questions, is there a center that matches up as close to a timbre match as possible with the 683s?
