I don't understand the abbreviations you are using.

 

I've just been thinking, if the Edifier R1600Ts were amped, could their max volume succeed that of the Soundsticks? Or are the Edifiers just not suitable for being amped? Its no good just being loud, they have to be punchy as well.

You can't amp the edifiers any more, you would have to replace there interal amp or take it out and bulid a passive cross-over and run them from an extenal amp both require a good knowledge of eletronics and speaker d.i.y.

Ok, so I really do need a bookshelf upgrade then.

 

The Wharfedale Diamond 10.2s and SW150 look fantastic, but I need to keep the total cost  (bookshelves + sub + amp) under £500. I am going to have to downgrade somewhere.

See if you can find a cheaper amp.

What about this amp http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-STRDH100-Receiver-2-Channel/dp/B002CU0N2G/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1321481735&sr=8-1 , you can have the Wharfedale Diamond 10.2 and SW150 and still be in budget.

Thats great. That is the build I will go for if I am buying totally new parts.

 

I am also investigating an old high-end hi-fi system to see if it still has life in it somewhere.

As volume is important speaker efficiency must be a big priority.  Forget NHT in that regard.  Wharfdale Diamond are an option for sure.
