    I've got the following setup: MA Silver 8i's on front, 10i centre and a pair of fxi's (along with an MJ acoustics sub).

    I was thinking of buying an extra set of black fxi's to make a 7.1 setup (I've got a Denon 3802 amp), however these seem to have been discontinued and I can't find a pair anywhere!

    Has anyone else been in this situation and found a good pair of dipole/bipole speakers to slot into a similar setup?

    I'd welcome some advice please. My first thought was just to buy a pair of the new MA Silver SFX speakers - I'm not sure if they'd match well, but they're the first thing to try I guess! Also - HifiBitz don't seem to have them on their list - are they available yet?

    Cheers,
    Adele.

    Lack of response to my query seems to suggest that there is no Monitor Audio replacement for the fxi available. Is that really the case?

    Would Mordaunt Short MS 506 dipoles fit in with my setup for 7.1?

    I'd really appreciate some advice please.

    Many thanks,
    Adele.

    Not sure which models are being suggested as rears, maybe the S2's going on the price. I have the S1's on the rear which were £299 at Sevenoaks.

    I have Sfx on order to replace Mission DS as rears (I chop and change rears between direct and dipole to suit) and GRfx for sides. The Missions are a good option around £200 but the Sfx will voice match your system better, only you can decide if it's worth spending the £400.

    Another alternative would be MA Bronze fx, about £200 I expect.

    There were some FXi's for sale a while back :-

    If you fancy an upgrade how about GRfx (Diplole/Bipole) for sides and moving the FXi's to the rear?

    Adele,
    Where did you position your rears ? How high up etc. Just bought a set myself havnt got the amp yet a few weeks to go. Square room I sit on the back wall in the middle, wondering should they go on the side wall or on the rear wall also what hight to put them at ? any ideas before I start drilling a lot of holes in the ceiling to bring the wires down.

    Cheers in advance

    Davy
