There's no realistic next step up. The R909 and R907 are way above the price range of the C80 series. Even way, way above the C809's price point.
Well, it's either going to be the S606, C807 or C607.
The C807's are also discontinued. So unless he can locate a leftover pair, scratch that. He may be trying to find a leftover pair of C807.
The C607 are still available and in my opinon......are much, much better than the C805. If it were me, I would insist he get you a pair of C607.
Do you mind me asking how much he was charging you for the C805?
I have a pair of C807 and C607. I know how much the C607 can be had for. Want to make sure he's not pulling a fast one on you. Don't let him BS you, the S 606, while being a fine speaker ......are NOT better than the C607. In fact, I get the feeling that's what he's trying to get you. A pair of S 606 which go for about $100.00 more than the C805.
The C807 are just a teeny-weeny tad better than the C607. But you know what, it's so very close. There's things about the C607 I like better than the C807.

We're not talking drastic differences, here.
I'm still hoping to pick up a pair of C809, some time in the near future. If I'm lucky.
