Just bought some Rega RS5's :cheer: I tested them against a set of CM8's.
I was surprised at how poor the B&W's sounded in comparison to the Rega's, coupled with how cheap they look i was immediately sold on the Rega's. I tried some RS3's also but in the end the RS5's won as they were superbly musical in every way. I gave the B&W's a 2nd listen and it reaffirmed my decision, I actually found it hard work listening to them.
Equipment used to test was Arcam A38, rDAC wireless, my Macbook Pro, Chord Crimson Plus.
Disappointed to move away from B&W after 10 years or som but i genuinely believe my 602 S2's sounded better than those CM8's.
