    The 705 is the better, more refined speaker, but your results will depend on what you are using upstream.

    With that integrated amp I think you'd be better off with the S60.

    Yes, the Signature series are better suited for music.

    For the second time, your integrated amp is better matched to the S60.

    The signature series is designed to be easier to drive than the LSiM series. Your cambridge is a nice little entry level integrated, but its just not going to have the juice to drive the 705s. Honestly, bookshelf speakers like the s20 would probably be better suited, but if you insist on towers definitely the s series.

    Use the money saved for a decent little sub and stands.

    I am going to expand on this just a bit. Your Cambridge is a capable piece of kit, but is quite underpowered for the LSiM 705’s. If it is your intent to upgrade your integrated within the next 6 months to something more capable of giving them the power they need, I would get the 705’s.

    If you plan on staying with the Cambridge, then getting the S60’s would be the better choice.

    Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.
