I was originally planning on buying a set of mission m7 speakers. the m74i, m7ds and 2 m7c2's to plug into my nice new Marantz SR4300 But then i found a few £100 in an old bank account. Since i had already bought the TV, didn't need anything more than the 4300 had to offer and had a small budget injection the obvious answer was buy better speakers. So after searching the forums it appeared that the Acoustic Energy Aegis Evo's were something to look for. So i put on the old research hat. Yep, i am happy to go with the AE Evo's over the missions... except for one thing. Rear Speakers. The room i am in isn't so much small (3.3m x 4.2m) as cluttered -- big bed, computers, tv, books, etc. -- and this means that i wont have that much space behind me. So i was quite happy with the concept of the di-pole speakers that i could get from mission. The idea being that it dosn't matter exactly where they are or where they are pointing, just sorta to my left or right. But AE dont have dipoles, just monopoles, so my option would be to put either the evo 1's or compacts as my surrounds (and maybe the rear as well, not sure whether to use a centre or normal speaker) But anyway. Can anyone tell me if the evo 1's are good as surrounds? Should i use a different brand to get dipoles? Are there any good resources on the net to tell me about where to place rear speakers? (i always assumed it was behind, but the sr4300 manual says beside or slightly infront of you) I am nearly there, just need speakers and cable then i have my little bit of HT goodness.
