I had just bought the B&W CM8 + CMC speakers. Currently I am using Pioneer 819 AV receiver. I wanted to upgrade the AV receiver, any good recommendation ?

The new pm1 is quite good for music and songs. You should also audition it when you are there. Is about the same price as cm9

I had tried the XLO ht pro speaker cable with the cmc. The result is indeed is very good. So much clarity now when watching movie. It also sound forward

Personally i like banana plug more. Is convinient. So far the connector had been very good in term of fitting the banana plug from speaker cable. I believe most of the model should be the same more or less. Of course if the banana plug is some cheap one then you will feel it does not fit nicely as i tried before. Now using XLO cable with the original banana plug, is all fit nicely

I think some times the built quality of the plug is also important.

Just plug alone i dont think you will hear any difference. With different cables, yes you can hear the difference. I have use the kimble kable 8TC and XLO for CM8 and CMC. I can tell you, the sounds are much different. Before this i uses monster cables, is pretty lousy i will say

I am very happy with 8TC sound is very full. Doesn't sound hollow as before using 8TC. I use to be skeptical about speaker cables, now I am a believer

Yes. Run in first and evaluate later.
