Ok, so my home office, 12ft x 12ft x 10ft (ceiling) is being renovated. I currently have a pair of DBR62 speakers powered by a monoblock NC400 each. Subwoofer is a Genelec 7060B.

I'm thinking about swapping out the DBR62 & NC400s with a pair of Genelec 8030c, mostly to save space and keep a clean look. In either case, the subwoofer would remain the same.

Essentially this:
Roon Bridge > Topping EX5 > Genelec 7060B > NC400 > DBR62

or this:
Roon Bridge > Topping EX5 > Genelec 7060B > Genelec 8030c

Is there any measurable advantage to the Genelec pair over what I have now, though? What would you folks do?
