On other hand if you have itch why not just look around.If you like Krell han you can run just about anything that will foit in romm.I like German speaker like Audio Physic and thinkl they are a good value.But I sold Krell and B&W so know and like them (though I chose tubes and horns).Why not see wha all the hubbub is about $3K Gallo's?Hyperion at $4K is Wilson looking knock off and both Totem and Usher offer real bang for buck in $2K to $3K range.But me? With that amp I'd save up another $1K and get a used pair of B&W Nautilus 803's.Enough bass great sound stage dpeth,hight etc.Plus it's a real solid state speaker because though 90db sensitive it needs current because of impedancce dip and Krell would work great.Jaybo is being sensiible and Spendors are great but I'd still vote do both stick with 603S until you can get into anoter universe with Nautilus 803N.
P.S though 805's ae fine monitor prefer for money the Revel M22's.If you can't fit 804's look for the Audio Physic.But since you have 803's.That at $5K list was more of value than $2700 805N,$3500 804N the 803N was much better value in all respects like coherence and soundstage etc
Buy used. For $2000, you can easily get a speaker that sells new for $3000-3500. The best of that breed from Proac, Dynaudio, Salk, Tyler, etc., will probably knoock the socks off of your 603's. :)
Another advantage of buying used is that if you change your mind, you can resell them for no loss. However, the trick with used speakers is finding them, so you may have to be patient.
Don't get rid of the 603's until you have found just the right replacement.
Good luck. Let's know how it goes.
