I currently have Acoustic Energy Evo 3's as a surround setup and am looking to upgrade he speakers with an emphasis on music more than surround.

They're not bad speakers but the bit I'd like to improve most would be listening to music at low volumes as they're quite "muddy" at lower levels .... think 2 people sitting in a room talking with background music.

Don't mind 2nd hand at all and would probablu upgrade the centre not long after to match, again with the emphasis on clarity as much as anything else.

Was thinking about sone 2nd hand B&W 603's or possibly some Monitor Audio Silver 200's as they're currently on offer .... any thoughts on if I'm likely to notice much difference??

Be especially interested to hear any other suggestions as well.

Apologies and My Bad ... should have thought about it, the extra info as requested.

The room's 26 x 15 and the receiver a Denon AVR 2311 - 135 wpc and yes the floorstanders are my fronts.

What speakers are used for the rears and centre? Mixing and matching can cause audible shortcomings, unless you are experienced--which I'm not
They came as a surround set so
Evo Centre in the middle

Evo 3's

Evo 1's at the rear

Ok. Have you tried repositioning the speakers. So for instance if you have tie-in try them straight ahead. Always found they sound more open when firing straight ahead
