OK, so technically she's not my wife!! I currently have a pair of Black Eltax Liberty 5+, a black Acoustic Energy Aegis centre, and beech gale 3060B bipolar rears. The gf keeps saying that she hates the look of the Eltax!! I agree they are not pretty but don't sound too bad. As a compromise I think I'm going to start looking at some other speakers. Can anyone recommend something that looks nice (to suit a modern living room), either beech/cherry if conventional, or silver satelites. I am considering the Canton CD1 package, but am worried that this won't sound as good with music as my current setup?? (Yam RXV640 amp) Or any other floorstanders that aren't as deep as the Eltax (33cm which I didin't think was too bad!!). She has said dhe likes the apperance of AE Aegis EVO 3's, but not sure that I can stretch, what is avergae price for these now? £350 ish? Cheers guys.
