    I'm getting a Tag AV32 BP192 7.1 and I'm considering how to upgrade my current speaker set up.
    My room's approx 5m x10m. I have my Screen and Projector at one end and a general seating come TV area at the other.
    My current speakers are B&W 604's,LCR6,DS6's and ASW2500.
    I'd been thinking of putting the additional rear speakers to the rear of the room but this means they'd be 5m behind the seating and the DS6's.
    I've been advised that this is a bit too far and a better option would be to fit ceiling speakers.
    Does anyone know the current retail price of B&W ceiling speakers?

    I'd look at at pair of CCM80's they'd be a good match ot the rest of your system. I think the price of them is £350 pair, can't be sure though. Give your local B&W Custom Install dealer a call to make sure.

    I'm just about to order some B&W Signature 7 in wall speakers. They cost around £700 but imho are worth it. They will be placed in the ceiling above my listening position. My fronts are all Ruark and I'm using Naim amps/processor. Check out the web site for all the details.

    ngip: Still trying to get a price for the sig 7's. They are discontinued. Stock still available. They need DEEP space to fit. Ceiling installation should be fine though

    I assume this is the Sig 7 NT's?

    What are they being replaced with?

    I like the look of the new Sig 8NT. It's big for an in-wall, shoudl sound good. Any idea of a price on that Gordon?
