    As a good compromise of looks, performance and budget the Kef KHT 2005.2 Eggs are a good solution to me.

    My concern is the placement of the front three speakers. They will be accompanying a wall mounted 42" Plasma.

    The most obvious location for the sats is the room corners, just under the ceiling. My issue is that the most obvious place for the centre is on the unit under the plasma. This means that sats will be about 1.7M higher than the centre which is far from ideal.

    However, my inital thoughts are that small speakers look a bit naff on stands. I'm also not sure about mounting such small speakers halfway down the wall or by the side of the plasma - just think it would look a little odd.

    I was wondering if anyone here has pictures showing possible ideals for installation.

    Cheers,

    Nigel

    I've not been looking at the thread for a while, but IIRC there are loads of pics of the Kef Eggs in Get your plasmas out for the lads - Pt2 but they may take some finding as the thread is so big.

    For what it's worth I have never seen an installation with these looking great. If you favour this style then Gallo or the new B&W MT30 may be better for you. Take a look at those. Personally I think the eggs look really dated....The B&W sub is a timeless classic, but whilst the B&W satellites are very cool now, but will probably see the same fate as the eggs over time. Just my opinion obviously! sound good though

    I know a mate who has these speakers, they sound very thin- I have heard them and they dont compare to my acoustic energys, I think you got to buy speakers to match the size of room, we both have massive front thru rooms and the kefs really are not designed to fill that size of space, they are excellant but in a smallet application i feel!
    Good luck in the quest for the pucker sound we all seek!
