I have had these speakers for about five years now and was roaming around Best buy and was able to audition B&W CM9. This saturday, I was able to audition B&W 802 D with Theta mono amps and meridian preamp and B&W 802 Nautilus with Theta amps as well and conrad johnson preamp. I am not really that much of an audiophile although I now have a big itch to upgrade my listening system (Infinity Primus 360 and PS8 Sub) with Harman Kardon 3485 and wish to upgrade to a reasonable audiophile set up. I will not say my system sounds bad because I have loved this for quite some time but after listening to the 802's Diamond and Nautilus, I now have an itch I can't hardly scratch. Those giant speakers are too big for my listening area 12 x 12, and the price seems to be too steep for me. I don't have a specific budget but looking for something just as big as the infinity primus 360's. I haven't auditioned any speaker this size besides the b&w cm9's. Please suggest other speakers within the price range of the b&w cm9 $3000 for the pair up to $5000 for a pair. I guess I want to get away from using a sub since I noticed myself turning down the PS8 sub that I have paired with my 360's lately or sometimes end up turning it off. Am I beginning to listen to music the right way? I'm also beginning to listen to a lot more classical music, instrumentals, enoch light orchestra cd's, etc. although listen to all types of music particularly classic rock and soft rock. I haven't auditioned but am researching, reading reviews about B&W 803 D and 804 D. Also am reading about Paradigm S8's. I would love to get something that if I spend my money on, I know I can hear a big difference that I will be able to tell myself, It's worth spending my money on these new speakers compared to what I presently have. Thanks in advance.
