    Been on a home cinema set-up project for some time and been looking at the likes of Gallo speakers on the basis that the other half would moan about 'speakers'. However, out of the blue it appears as though she's not particularly bothered as long as the wiring can be hidden.

    B & W 604 for fronts and DS6 for surrounds have been recommended, with a Denon (3803 at least) amp. Anyone running this setup and how is it likely to compare to, say, Gallo A'Divas.

    Have been told by several shops not to bother with the 604s unless you have an absolutely massive room. 603s and seperate sub always mentioned as better option. Would be interested in your experience of the new DS6s though.

    E-mailed B & W on the basis of the information on their website that the 604s are suitable for 'larger' rooms. The reply states that they should be OK for my room (24' x 11'), speakers firing across the narrower distance, but to get a home demo to make sure.

    Hope to do that at some stage. May be tricky getting anything other than a listening room demo for the DS6s though.
