    Buying new speakers (B&W)

    Hi,

    I am planning on buying a pair of floorstanding speakers. So far I have a Rotel pre-amp and 2 2x200W Rotel amps which i got from my dad. They were hooked up before with B&W803 but are my dad replaced some components with lyndorf (with the roomperfect which is actually very good). I was thinking of getting a second hand 803 again, since i know them, i like them, and they would look very nice in my appartment
    Altough i was wondering if maybe anybody has some other advice/hints/tips to what to get. I listen to all kinds of music including dance,techno,rock,classic,... the estetical factor for me is also quite important.

    regards,
    Philippe

    What's your budget? And have you heard any other speakers that you like?

    Good suggestions, but somehow I doubt he'll be crazy about the looks
