    I will either wall mount them or get speaker stands, i was thinking either the mission m71i or gale gold monitor.

    I would go slightly further and say "position and mounting are very important"

    I think the Mission M71's are staggeringly good speakers for roughly £60, they do need decent stands though

    I would personally get a 2nd hand pair of B&W DM601s.

    I still haven't heard any other budget bookshelf pump out as much bass and be able to be driven so loud. should **** all over those Missions, Eltax and Tannoys if you like your bass.

    Contrary to Londondecca, I think expensive stands are a complete waste of money for this gear, though wall mounting is a bad idea - just get whatever cheap and cheerful stands you can afford

    There was an interesting demo many years ago where a speaker was hidden and the audience asked to identify the speaker. Most went for a mid range (£500ish) large speaker due to the very deep and impressive bass. It was in fact a Whafdale Diamond on some fancy and very expensive stand.

    If your speakers are not held correctly, you are losing information. I am not suggesting that someone spends £300 on stands for a £80 speaker but in my experience they are an important part of the system.

    Where you place the speakers is of greater importance but that is another issue
