    Hi :)

    Try hunting down a pair of discounted Acoustic Energy EVO 3's on-line... Gorgeous sound and easily adapted at home cinema as well as Hi-Fi systems in my opinion ... They are superbly balanced and fairly compact !
    I'm a Hi-Fi fan and music clarity is my first priority and it's what i judge speakers from the most. :)

    Goodluck on your decisions ! :smashin:

    I used to have a pair of celestion F30's.
    Lovely sounding speakers. Richersounds were doing them for about £200.

    If clarity is your priority, i'd look at standmount speakers. Their midrange is usually much better and have a better chance of producing a more 'holographic' soundstage.

    Cheaper floorstanders tend to try and produce more bass than the quality of their cabinets and bass drivers can handle, seriously affecting midrange clarity. Decent floorstanders tend to start from above tyhe £500 mark, but even then i'd look at standmounts. For me, there aren't many floorstanders i'd actually buy for my own audio system.
