As I carry on the HiFi upgrading I'm finding myself wondering if my speakers are the weak link now..?

I have a few systems (like any other HiFi junky).  The one in question, which I have never been happy with TBH, consists of Inspire DC Carbon LP12 & 
Rev M powered by an Arcam AVR850 run in a Bi-Amped configuration (I'm running 5.1. this thing can do 7.2 so has amps to spare for 2 channel listening).
Current speakers are Monitor Audio Silver RS floor standers.
Cables are Chord Chorus RCA & QED Silver Bi-Wire.

I don't use the REL 12" sub for 2 channel music & I want more slam/bass.

Always liked the cut of KEF's jib, at the higher end at least.  Maybe L*nn speakers too?  They will be second hand, I don't have new PMC type cash.

Any recommendations folks?

I have a pair of Q100's as the front speakers for home cinema and gave them an extended audition as my stereo left and right speakers powered by the excellent Proprius amps. They were second hand and the smallest cabs in the range that year so some bass compromises but the coincident drivers do work well. KEF have produced more advanced and larger UniQ speakers since then including the LS50's. I would certainly suggest a demo to see if you like the sound.
