What speaker would be a good match with my RA-1520? I am considering the new CM8s from B&W and will try to audition within a couple of months, but are there better alternatives for a room at about 20 sq.mtrs?

Listen a lot to jazz, pop, rock - NEVER metal nor techno.

I have tried a dual 6.5" floorstander and it was a tad bassheavy in this room so I was thinking dual 5" would perhaps fit the bill, but is the Rotel up for the CM8-task?

Thank you for your replies.

For your tastes in music I think the Rega RS5's would be a better match than the B&W CM8's

The Rotel is a superb amp but to get the best out of the CM8's a more powerful amp would be needed IMO

Other speakers to consider would be the QUAD 22L2's, Monitor Audio RX6's, B&W CM5's on decent stands or even possibly the Neat Motive 2's
