I have the RX6s. First I matched them with CA 650A which produced a detailed sound that was occasionally too bright to my ears, which I don't think was the fault of the speakers. I now have them punching above their weight with the Quad II-forty/ Quad QC-twentyfour pre/power combo and they sound great. When I took them with me to audition the amps, the dealer was initially expecting the speakers would not do the amp justice. He soon changed his mind
FWIW I have the Chord SilverScreen speaker cables.
That's a deadly combo you have there. The other two gears are triple the price of the speakers, and you're bold enough to invite the RX6 into that league. I guess the speakers limit has reached with your setup.

Deadly=Good or Deadly=It might kill me?
OK so if I spent >3x what I paid for the RX6s, I'm sure there would be some improvement and one day, wife willing, I may just do that. For now I am very much enjoying my setup and I am not all the time worrying that the RX6s are letting the team down. The RX6 is quite sensitive so 40W is more than enough power for me.
BTW I bought the Quads second hand, only four months old and about half the price of new. I could not have afforded them new.
I own a pair of RX6 and a MF a5.5 + Arcam cd37. Though the other elements are far more expensive than the RX6 I'm really happy with that combo. Terrific VFM . And they look great as well. You can't go wrong with those...
picked mine up 2 weeks ago for £675 so £600 is a good deal as well. They sound great straight out of the box but i am awaiting even more from them - have been running them in gently. Finish is excellent at the price point and they certainly punch above their weight in terms of sound and build quality. They have just replaced my 10/12 year old Mordaunt Short MS40i floorstanders which were no slouches during their time but these MArx6's kick like a mule compared to my old ones.
