Potentially and moving to the Sasha v2, but don't want to loose my shirt during the process.

And now with my new cables (which are yet to be delivered) being biwire, doesn't make things easy. I can change the connectors from banana to spades though.

Wireworld will re-terminate the cables for a reasonable fee, or in your case seeing as they will be brand new most likely swap them for a non-biwire configuration.
They are a great company and have always accomodated my requests.

I can't remember which side of the new B&W D3 looks department you are on but if you like what they look like you may want to wait to hear them before making a final decision. Who knows perhaps the 802D3 and/or the 800D3 will blow the Sasha 2 out of the water.

Great advice. I may look to add a Subwoofer in the mean time.

Audiohippo,
You mentioned Biwire cables. If you mean separate connections to the tweeter and woofer, you can't do that with Wilson speakers.

Yes all good, I landed up purchasing spade connectors and dual wiring the single pair of terminals. This saved getting the cables re-terminated.
