Currently hunting for suitable floor standing speakers to replace my Diamond 9.5
Biggish room 25/16 feet
Yamaha AVR RX V650 receiver.I use it in the pure mode with the avr gimmicks turned OFF.Wish I had brought a stereo amp as the primary objective was to listen to music
Rarely use the Diamond center speaker and sub woofer I had brought
Music preference- western classical/jazz/soul
Movie preference- films by Tarkovsky/Bergman/Antonioni etc.Don't need many sound effects.Absolutely DETEST ALL Hollywood/Bollywood films
Liked the audition of Jamo D590.But kind of expensive.What is the best price I can buy these for?Read somewhere that Jamo is offering up to 40 % discount on demo speakers.Is that true?Are they still available?
Jamo C407 audition was also kind of nice but is it worth replacing my Diamond 9.5 with these?Best price?
What other brands are available in the Delhi region.Willing to consider brands available in Bombay/Bangalore which can be delivered in Chandigarh.

if ur budget permits get a monitor audio RS6, it is available for 15-20% clearence discounts, can be had for 55k which is amazing price for speaker of such good quality.
next would be dali lector but i would rate it at par with RS6, retails around 60k

i own a yamaha 863 which you can say is roughly similar to what you have..
frankly if you are replacing wharf 9.5 which retails at 30k, u should be thinking for closer to 1L for a pair of FS.
I have auditioned all of the FS mentioned above except Thiel, pairing then with my AVR. But as my budget for FS was max 70-80k i did not audition any FS above this range..
I purchased a RX6 as I found them best sounding pairing with my AVR..
Next best were Quad 22L2, Dali Ikon 6 and RS6
Next would be B&W 683(overpriced for the SQ)/Dali Lector 6/Jamo 405
As for RS8/Lector 8/Ikon 8 these add mainly a bass driver, which i feel wont do justice to the extra money, as u would invest in a sub anyways..
so rather than investing a dedicated base driver i would suggest u to look for even better quality in the other drivers..
Try Canton Karat FS, Dynaudio - there is a dealer in Delhi..
I would recommend u to drive from Chandigarh on a saturday with ur AVR and fix appointments with the dealers in delhi for demo..

Approximate prices I have been quoted are 77K FOR QUAD 22L2,57K FOR RS6,47K FOR JAMO C407.I have only been able to audition the Jamo and it is definitely a major improvement over the Wharf 8.4.(not Wharf 9.5 as I mistakenly mentioned earlier).But I would like to demo the other two which all the review seem to suggest are better than the Jamo.Is it worth paying the extra 20 K for Quad 22L2 over the MA RS 6?I am also thinking of replacing the Yamaha AVR with a Marantz PM8000/Nad C352 Stereo Amp.I am inclined towards a Nad C352/Quad 22L2 pairing but the budget seems to be slowly mounting.Planning to dispose of the speakers/center speaker and the Yamaha AVR but will retain the Wharf Sub.

well if budget is not an issue, i wd recommend to keep the existing set up, add the amp with the AVR, this way you can enjoy both music/movies to the fullest..

u might also want to look into the comparison between RX6 and 22L2 before making ur decison, RX6 would be a little cheaper..
i wd recommend u to finalize on the amp before shopping for speakers, this way it would be easier for u to carry it for a demo..

how much are audience 62 and 122 retailing for?

Ajay,
Are you going to sell or trade your existing 9.5s when you get your new speakers?
I feel instead of spending 60k on new speakers, you could look at a decent stereo int amp(about 35k) and try that with your 9.5s. If you are still not happy, trade the 9.5s for a good pair of bookshelves. Your sub would take care of the low freq.
