Though at home my room is not treated and I run emotiva amps. The 800Ds are way to rich for my blood. So I'm looking at some speakers that are in the 3k price range used. On audiogon I see some 803s and they caught my eye. I like the look of them, but have no idea how the compare to my klipsch's. can anyone comment on this, or recommend another B&W speaker that would be a step above klipsch RF-83?
i just switched from klipsch to bowers speakers "3 weeks ago"
i really did like my klipsch there astheitcaly pleasing to look at, great crisp highs !! great price but it lacks in mids what you get from a 3 way systems
i would look into the 683s they are lamost the sam as the cm9s but half the price tage, they feature the fst drivers 684s are basicaly the same as rf52 amd 62s
i had a rf52ii and rc52ii
im still using my klipsch inwalls for my rears for now and my rw12d subwoofers,
683 can be had at best buy for 1,500.00 i think or cm9s for 2,100.00 both would be a step up from your rf-83s in quality sound.
i still and alway will be a klipsch fan =>
