So, Mr. Quack, any chance to compare the 2 sets of boxes yet?

I had the Pioneer's hooked up to the B channel of my Denon for a couple of days prior to my last audition.

Without the purchase of an AB selector it was a little difficult to transparently switch back/forth as the levels were off due to the ohm difference.

Anyway, I was very impressed with my old Pioneers. Personally, I thought the detail was right up there with the m80's. Also, they may have had a bit more in the bass category compared to the 80's with no sub on, due to the 15" turbo woofers. Throwing the sub in the equation it was a toss up. I had more overall bass presence with the 605's because of the additional air movement of the 2 extra 12" woofers added to my 3 subs.

I also played around a little with small/large settings on the receiver to pump out more bass to the loudspeakers and they handled it well with no strain.

Honestly, I was very impressed with the sound I was hearing, maybe I should sell my 80's. Just kidding. \:\) I can say I won't be selling my old Pioneers anytime soon, just what to do with them?

I do have an old JVC pro logic receiver I could use it for 2 channel music listening with my 605's..

I think you should dig out the old receiver and keep those old pioneers live and kicking. Glad to hear they still stand up to new technology. Wish I had kept some of my old speakers for comparisons.
