    I have an absolute maximum of 200 to spend on speakers.

    its not gonna be an upgradable system. its going to be permanent.

    I wanted the tannoys for 200 from RS but they just said they don;t do them anymore.

    any alternatives?

    I have the Pioneer 402 reciever.



    edit: sorry i found one rs store with a couple tannoys left.

    but if there are any alternatives please say,

    If you are getting any sort of income - I would serisouly wait till you can afford an extra £50. The Mordaunt-Short Premiere system is excellent.

    I've just brought 2 pairs of Monitor Audio Bronze Bfx rears, MRRP £200.

    They are available from HiFiBitz for £165 http://www.hifibitz.co.uk/product.asp?id=2078

    Can't comment on how they compare because I haven't been able to install them yet but is gives you another option.

    Cheers, Beastie.

    Hi

    I bought the Elac Cinema One ESP Mk2 from Superfi at £199.95 http://www.superfi.co.uk/index.cfm/page/moreinfo.cfm/product_id/2046 and I am very pleased with them. They are very good as movie speakers and pretty good with music too. I use them in place of Heybrook HB2s which I thought were a hard act to follow. Incidentally the service from Superfi was superb.

    The Premieres are slightly bigger than your average satellite speaker, thus giving you a stronger midrange.

    You really cant fall off with the quality of these speakers!

    they only have them in black.

    everything else i have is in silver.

    i tried to get RS to price match but they picked up on this colour thing and said they'd only match like for like

    If you have a Bennetts Electrical near you, check to see if they have Tannoy FX 5.1's. They were selling them in Silver and Black for £126.
    I then got Richer to price match and got them for £116 :smashin: - Damn good speakers for the price....

    Another vote for Canton CD1s, they sounded lovely when I listened to them and are £200 from germany...there's an enormous thread about them here somewhere.
