  1. Hi all - indeed, another one! I have been extensively using the search function, but cannot find an identical case / the answer I am looking for, hence this topic. Situation: I love good music, and thus good fronts. Originally, my focus has been music 80 / HT 20. This has changed completely to 20/80 respectively. Hence, I want the speakers to be part of a future HT setup. At the same time, input channels will be Spotify and Netflix - i.e. not the highest quality. I currently have Dali Zensor 5’s from my previous house, but they are not able to create the soundbubble I want in my new house. I have bought them 6 years ago on a strict budget, and I now find myself “regretting” I did not sufficiently future proof the purchase. After all: why would you waste your good years listening to lower quality sound ? After quite some research and listening I am very much torn between the 8 and the 6. I have been able to listen to the RP-8000, which I really like. Unfortunately I cannot listen to the RP-6000 (at least: short term). What I have read on this forum is that they both perform very similar, while the 8 is more heavy on the bass in the mid and the 6 being more neutral, thus also being recommended to be paired with a sub. Interestingly, I have also read that the 8 is a huge step up in terms of creating the soundstage. Knowing the sizes of both, the 8 strikes me as very large (perception; the reference is the Zensor 5) - which is a concern to me as I am not sure whether that would fully blend in my room. In addition, the 8 is 750 euro whereas the 6 costs 640 (at one place even 470). Based on the above, I am not sure the price increase (220-560 total difference), the massive size of the 8 and the seemingly similar performance is worth buying the 8, as the 6 might perform fantastically well and I can spend the money on surround speakers. Question: can you please share your views on both, and your expert opinion / recommendations ? Would you buy the 8, or the 6 - and why ? As a context; my future receiver considerations (recommendations welcome): - NAD T758 - Denon X3700H Current room: 12x5 meters by 2.7m high. Part of this is kitchen, part is living area and 5x5 is living room area. Picture below. Context: I might move again to a living room being 5x8 meters 2.5 hight.
