    You'll probably get better dynamic capability and more extended lows.
    If you are looking for vintage speakers I think that the Spendor BC1 from that same era is considered a better speaker tonally wise, and there's also the SP1 and more recent SP1/2 or 1/2e.
    If performance is your goal, either the SHL5+ or the Stirling LS3/6. Current Spendors from S1 are not performing at a similar level.

    I recently had some Rogers Studio One's, great midrange and relaxed tone, too laid back for me, but if you like the BBC sound they're very good value.

    I think someone updated/refreshed the cross-over to good effect.

    How big is your room and how far away from the speakers do you sit?

    If you have a small room and sit less than 3m away from the speakers, the Harbeths will be hard to beat in terms of accuracy. The export monitors will give more heft to lower frequencies.

    I use the intro to the Long Version of Voodoo Chile by Jimi Hendrix as a test - if I can feel the guitar as well as hear it, it’s right, if the bass is overpowering, the speakers are too big or I have a standing wave issue.

    Have you considered a sub for the stuff below 75hz? This can be tuned far more easily than a larger pair of speakers or even switched off when you don’t want it. I found a modest sub used very subtly with my P3esrs worked wonders.
