    Have you considered the Kef eggs. Good quality for small speakers.

    Yes. excellent reviews as well, but the egg shape won't get OH approval

    i've found Anthony Gallo Reference 3 for £1200 in second hand (seeing a bit fancy on this). Is that really required for my setup?

    Hi,
    Have you considered the SVS set which I think may be available as a 'power buy' from AV sales.
    I recall somebody asking if they could be supplied without the sub, with the answer being yes.
    Regards

    Hi,
    Yes it was only after I had posted that I noticed the 'cute' requirement. Sounds like Kef Eggs or if you want some real quality with that big speaker sound, but not obtrusive, how about the PMC Wafers. They sounded great at the Bristol Show, and as your budget no longer has a limit may be worth looking at.
