    By "good" I mean "of comparable quality to a pair of B&W Nautilus 805s". Some of the high-end M&K tripoles might be good, but are also worryingly expensive. :(

    Any other suggestions?

    Eltax jobbies from RS? ;-)

    I have these- compare well against other speakers. Very wide dipole effect...

    Also checkout JM Labs £900 bipoles (can't remember range- think Electra)

    What's yer budget? Them Kef 206DS seem very nice. Cheap too! :p

    M&K SS-150 are nice, but IMO M&K speakers are overpriced in the UK.:mad:

    Kef THX Dipoles are excellent. M&K SS-150THX tripoles are as well, but pricey (unless you track down a pair 2nd hand - rare!). You could also consider the M&K S5000THX Dipoles, even more expensive and rarer!!
