    Hi,

    A friend of mine asked me to help them with buying a receiver and speakers to setup his Homecinema set.
    Which is the better choice?
    The Kef seems to be more powerfull than the Missions. but I think the Mission is much easier to setup.
    According to the mission ads you can place the front speakers in the top corner of your rooms against the walls.(within reason of course) Is this true?
    I don't have the feeling that the kefs are that easy to place.

    Anyway i'd appreciate it if you can give me the lowdowns on these speakersets.

    The Missions can be placed in the corners of the rooms right up agianst the wall. I've heard them a few times and they sound great, but i don't know anything of the KEF's.

    I heard both the missions and the KEF speakers on the same day at the HIFI show in Bristol. For me the KEF's sounded considerably better than the missions, which I thought sounded a little flat (excuse the pun). I was highly impressed with all aspects of the KEF's apart from the looks. At the show the missions were in the corners of the room up near the ceiling so I guess there can't be any problems where they are positioned. The KEF's were positioned conventionally. Hope this is some help.

    Hi,

    In my personal opinion, the KEF package is the better of the two. But bear in mind the two packages are very different, ie. the FS2 package is more discrete and flexible in terms of hiding loudspeakers! If you judge by sound performance alone, the KEF package is much better, especially on music. A great deal of effort was put into this package with regards to Hi-Fi performance, and has of course the great 'UNI-Q' technology behind it.

    Hope this has helped!
