Hi. I have a quick question about upgrading my hifi setup.

I currently have a Cambridge Audio 540R AV receiver running as a stereo amplifier. I use this to power a pair of Mordaunt-Short 904 Avant speakers. I also have a 'homemade' sub (Celestion amp + cheap driver) that works pretty well.

I am thinking of selling both the Mordaunt-Shorts and the sub. I would replace these with B&W DM603 S3's only.

What are peoples opinions on this upgrade, positives & negatives?

Regards

Freddie

Hi, and thanks for your reply.

A few reasons really. The bass produced from the sub feels very crude and 'disco' like. However if I run the MS's without the sub, they feel like they're lacking in low end power. I would rather a better set speakers rather than compromise with a sub.

I would rather a second hand set of speakers because I can get more for the money. I've spotted a good set of B&W's on ebay locally.

£200 - £250 from ebay is my budget really.

Cheers

Freddie

p.s. its a relatively large room (4 car garage size)
