    Hi ALL,

    Just bought a Pioneer 575 and a yamaha ax750se. Great write ups for both hense why I upgraded from Sony set-up. Problem is I need speakers. I was buying Short genie 5.1 but I cannot get the extra 2 to fill the 7.1 output of Yamaha 7.1 anywhere. Can anyone find me 2 extra genies or someone else recommend a alternative 7.1 package/source. Is the KEF speakers an option that is available? Somebody please help me. :hiya:
    Thanks

    Dave

    If you look at some of the Canton threads I think you'll find that popular setups would be :

    fronts CD100s
    Centre CD50
    Rears CD10s

    or CD100s allround plus CD50 centre and rear effects

    or CD300 front and CD100 rear plus CD50 centre and rear surround.

    Plus a few other combos including Cantons in wall and in ceiling variants.

    It has to be said that a lot of the Canton popularity has been price driven as currently its possible to buy these speakers direct from Germany at less than the UK trade price! But don't think that means the quality will be naff. The reviews from Canton CD owners on this forum have been very positive - especially if your main enjoyment is movies rather than 2 channel music (although CD300 owners would say that musically they're great as well).

    Have a look at the canton cd thread (it takes about a hour to read it though !) :eek:

    Ray :thumbsup:

    Extra Genie's are available from the end of the month or you could give www.avland.co.uk a go right now.
