Some additional info.
If there is an other great system you recommend I like to hear!
I also thought about a stereo amp with B&W and a separate sound bar.
Or a HT solution with the 685 front and some other in rear. I assume wireless in combination is a no-go because of delay.
Currently I have an old Home Theater system: Harman & Kardon AVR 235 with JBL SCS200.5 satellite speakers. In the past I had a stereo 3-way speaker system with separated audio components: Yamaha AV730, Pioneer CT676 tape deck, Sony CD and I.Q. LK 3 speakers ( I came for a couple B&W is sale but they where sold out, I was 15y, newspaper job, saved money...)
1. Every time I use the system I have to hook up my rear speakers.
2. I also like to listen to, good quality sound, music (stereo).
My living room is 6x7,5m with an open kitchen, the actual sitting area is about 4 x 5. So behind my bench there 2m open space.
I want to bye a new system but I am very in doubt what to do.
- First I like to watch movies, with great sound. And secondly I like to put up some music with also good quality sound.
So to solve the rear-speakers problem I put my mind on the Philips Fidelio E5, years ago. But than I heard about the Sonos and the Denon Heos.
So one day I listen to the sound of these last 2 in the shop but I found them sound less than my current system. So that's why I put my mind (back) on the B&W 685 s2. With a new amp it could sound great again. They are small, so less worries with my wife,
But if I want to have HT I have to bye the sub (B&W ASW610), rear B&W 686 s2 and centre B&W HTM62 S2. And the new problem occurs. "big" rear speakers. I don not matter, but my wife does
And it will coat me a lot of more money to spend
And what amp, stereo, AV. Prefer around 500,- (euro).
So any good suggestions?
