Hello all, new to the forum, pls be gentle ;)

So I recently fired up my old school Arcam Alpha 8 + 8P power amp (bi-amp) set up with my AE109s from 1998! Still a beautiful sound in my view, but have been looking at getting some new speakers.

Found a nice pair of second hand Monitor Audio Silver RX8 for sale at £600...

Question: before I take the plunge, is my 50W Alpha 8 + 50 W Alpha 8P amp combo sufficient to do the RX8 speakers justice? Or is there other speakers out there which would pair better with the Alpha 8/8P without breaking the bank?

Any wisdom on this would be highly appreciated!!

Cheers, Stewart

How big's your room, and what are you hoping to improve about the sound?
Room
Is 5x8 metres, so plenty space. AE109 were lower-mid end speakers back in the day. Just wondering if I can get a bigger, brighter and more detailed sound if I spend £600-£900 on some secondhand speakers
