    I have MA silver S6 speakers for music and will be using them for home cinema as well. Am going to add 2 keff eggs for rears and was going to get MA matching centre (as recommended for tonal balance). This centre would have to go above plasma and I think it will look odd with a big centre above. Can I get away with something like a keff centre? As I have 2 floorstanders how much more will a sub add? Thanks as always, I am getting so comfused.

    PS can you get kef or genie without sub?

    I'd say the general consensus you'll get is the kef will not be up to the job.

    What's the budget?

    I recently purchased the MA silver 10i from richers sounds for €149 (£109 sterling i think www.richersounds.ie) because they want to clear stock, this was the belfast branch i bought it from though. This speaker did go for £300 original i think.

    If you want (and have the money) you could go for the SLCR which is the silver 10i replacement i think.

    Sorry Doc, just read the size part or your original so i suppose the SLCR or the Silver 10i is out then.

    Sorry.

    Why not consider the MA Radius 180 or 225 as centre, and how about the R90's as rears instead of the eggs. It will match your MA Silver's better!

    You could use the MA Radius 180 as a centre which is not too big at all.

    Dimensions (in cm) 35 H x 12 W x 9.5 D
