Thinking of upgrading speakers from ProAc 3.8 I have enjoyed in my system for 23 years.
+1 @jjss49  and My Response 3.5 's aren't going anywhere either until my youngest takes them ~ he has already laid claim to them   Would not mind adding the K8's to the collection and a pair of ATC SCM50's

Best Tube Amp for High Sensitivity Speakers: 45, PX25, or 300B?
@clhs04 I do not understand the comment that a 300B falls way short of the Power Tube Task. Likely, if they are not in the right "environment", they will fall short.  Like the OP I too have the Daedalus Muse Speakers and enjoy them with a pair of...

Intriguing inquiry, are floor-stand speakers always better than active speakers?
@holmz   LMAO , thanks for that one   
For all you Bose 901 Haters!
@mrdecibel  Unfortunately I will unfortunately need to take the 5th . I remember the "SABA" name and know there was a German MFG of the same name. However looking at images on-line none look familiar . It was a very solid and basic wood plinth whi... 
For all you Bose 901 Haters!
