The subwoofer is decidedly hefty, with a huge 6.5in driver located inside.

Okay, I'm not gonna talk about my own setup because that's in no way a fair comparison.
But - why the hate of "old-school" speaker wire connections? With those you can connect a decent pair of bookshelf speakers instead of the ridiculous small speakers supplied with the system. That was what I did when I had a Z5400 speaker system. It's a great way to get some feel for real speakers while still staying nice and dry.
A Z5400 with B&O bookshelf speakers sounds surprisingly well :)
Oh and sorry, but a "hefty" and "huge" subwoofer is my dual 15" Cerwin Vega sub - not a 6.5" single-driver OEM 'thing'..

When I can't be bothered with surround-sound I use a pair of Beyerdynamic DT250 headphones. But this might be a handy stop-gap to resurrect my Z5400 system again... What particular speakers from B&O did you use?
