    Im looking to buy either a small hifi system or a hifi amp. Im also looking for some good bookshelf speakers to go with it.

    Can anyone recommend any good ones. I dont have a huge budget, so any second hand recommendations would be good as well.

    mission 731 speakers are nice-sounding, small speakers which seem pretty flexible about where you put them; the i or le versions are worth looking out for as they apparently have better treble. They often go on e-bay for around the £40 mark, sometimes even less. Well worth a look imho.

    Thanks for the suggestion jon_mendel.

    Max budget is around £200.

    One of the problems is that my bedroom is small, and the only place I have to put this systen will be a shelf. It quite a large, deep shelf, but it means the speakers will be quite close together.

    How close would the speakers need to be? - I've used my missions (I've got the LE version) about a meter or so apart on my desk, and they sounded OK although you do get a better stereo sound if they're 1.5m-plus apart. Have you thought about using wall brackets, as you will tend to get a better sound from speakers if they're not too close together...

    Well the room is fairly small, around 9 - 10 foot square. The shelf is in the corner of this room, and the speakers would be around 1m apart.

    I may be able to get away with speakers on the wall if they aren't too big. But normal sized speakers may be slightly too large, and get in the way.

    Would like to know the sensitivity rating of the Sonus Faber Minima Amator.
    Thanks!
