Which B&W are you replacing?

I have used an Aleph 3 for four years. When I wanted to upgrade speakers I listened to as many as I could in the $2k-4k range with my amp driving them. For stand mounted speakers the best I heard were Proac Response 2s and the Spendor SP1/2. In full sized speakers it came down the the Acarion Alon II, Von Schweikert VR-3 and Meadowlark Heron. The Herons proved to be the magic combo for me.
It is bass ackwards, Cornfedboy (though I'm really more of a mid's type). I'm replacing an ancient pair of B&W DM-2000s. While I was looking at the bewildering number of options, I got a great deal on the Pass. I was half-hoping that the amp would force me to narrow it down (1-2K). I'm leaning toward the Totem 1's, but I'm thinking there's a better match out there. Thanks all for the input.
