    Hi all,

    I am seriously thinking of getting 2 of the satellites and the centre speaker from this system from stone audio. Basically it's time to start upgrading my system which is a very slow process atm coz i'm also saving for a house after the ex-wife took my old one off my hands so while i'm saving i'd thought i'd get a few treats for my home cinema as i spend every night in atm.

    Set-up - Onkyo TS606 7.1 feeding 5 x Bose Acoustimass 15 Twin cubes. I quite like the Bose and will keep 4 of them for the surround channels but want some style front speakers to give some depth and detail to my movies and music.

    My question to any owners or peeps that have heard them is how do you feel they weigh up on movies, i.e crisp dialog from centre speaker and left and right channels. For music i always listen to 2.1 thru the Onkyo in stereo mode but love the crispness of highs and detail of vocals.

    All opinions are welcome and experiences.

    Many Thanks

    Dave

    Yep I have a sub, it's not a good one but it provides the bass crudely, looking to upgrade to the Kef PSW2500 very soon as Play.com have them in Black for £220 atm.

    Ermmm not big on elaborate words ...in fact most speakers reviews going on about depth and clarity make me mad and feel you are buyign snake oil.

    Wife likes the look of them and I like the sound I am not an audiofile but they pack a nice punch.

    I have them with an onkyo 905 see my link below for pics.

    Oh they sounded just as good if not better than the 3005s which more people have if you wat reviews.
