Very little - though you'll need stands for all the satellites

Have owned and really loved listening to a pair each of B&W 805 Matrix S2's and 602 S2's (year 2000). I know the traditional hallmarks of B&W sound: imaging, balance, clarity, and omission of sins. I *enjoyed* those speakers.

I used to have a pair of B &W DM2A. Transmission line. Those 685 cannot beat them.
