    Hi

    In a word "NO!"

    My dad used to have a set and they where dull sounding and lacking in ... erm everything! They may be better than no speakers... but not much!

    Try and get some smaller speakers that are good quality. Like the mission 780's maybee with a small sub would do the trick.

    By all means try some kef eggs but they are not impressive

    Hope I have helped

    I have moved from full size speakers to Egg sized speakers (speakers from 2 Logitech THX Z560 setups) and the difference is very noticeable when listening to music....but if you need the space like i did then there is no alternative.

    Also, as far as sound for TV and films, as long as you have a decent sub, the overall sound is still awesome and i am more than happy with them

    If you still have the space for your speakers when you move, then save the hassle of selling them and buying smaller ones by just using what you got......

    Hope this is of some help!

    KEF eggs are dire for music,don't even think about them,they'll make you cry.For A/V they're good,there advantage, as has been mentioned are cool looks and space saving,for effects they'll do the job,centre is a bit weak,jeeez wonder why I bought them actually!!!LOL

    So unless what you have is really ugly or taking up too much space I'd keep them,I had some B&W CDM1 for fronts once,boy do I regret selling them!!!

    I had a set of keff eggs, for space saving and movies they are fine but not so good with music. You will also need a decent sub to get the best from them.

    If you have the space to keep your full size speakers then personally i would do that, if however you need the space thne go with the kefs or something similar.
