    You could try the Defintive Technology Pro Cinema series (80, 100 or 200, depending on budget). The Pro Cinema 80 pack retails for £950, and had a very good review in HCC a while back. We have them in our demo room and they are the best i've heard in their price and size range.

    Why are getting rid of your Cresta's? They are lovely speakers.

    Hello Derek,

    I don't have the Bostons myself, but have had a good listen to them, and they are great for the size, when used with a good sub.

    They are expensive here in the UK, so have a look at
    http://www.mediacheckpoint.de

    Only 323DM each (£103) for the 90x, about £123 for the 90 Centre, so the money saved here means you can buy a bigger Sub :)


    Good luck,

    Mark G.

    I have a similar setup

    3802
    4 x Micro 90x
    1 Micro 90c
    Rel Q150E
    and I use the Gallo Nucleus Micro for back surround

    I have used the Micro 90:s for appr 3 years and have been totally satisfied.

    They play clean and loud, superb for movies of any kind.
    Using the High level input on your Rel sub and running the Denon 3802 in Direct mode also gives you a very good sound for stereo music.

    Relative to the size of the speakers they are very, very good
    Some people say the bigger the better, and if this is true I should concider trying the Micro 100x for front L & R for a slightly "richer" sound in stereo.

    My mix n match speakers included the Boston VRS Micro rears which I thought were exceptional and I only changed them on aesthetic grounds.

    I still have them if you are interested.
