    audition and see which ones you like the best, but why not just get some tannoys to complete the set. For music monopoles are considered better.

    Do you have a budget?- I am happy to recommend the MS 506 THX dipole but you won't get much change from £500.

    To be honest i'm not sure, i've only got 5.1 and i'm not sure id much is gained by going to 7.1, haven't really asked as i'm quite content.

    It is sugested that mono are better for music as it is alot more directional and di/bi are better for movies becuase you get ambient sounds rather than direction on films. In all honesty i got some mission di poles because they looked good (look like the stuff in cinema's) and had decent reviews.

    Are you going for surround music? if not then get di/bi poles otherwise just get some tannoys that match your current set, if in doubt audion if you can. Try equivently priced di/bi and monopoles and see which one you like the best.

    I am using the MS506 THX Dipoles and they work fantastically well with the SR7400, great speakers!

    Do Tannoy not do Dipole rears? Monopoles will be better than a small di/bipole for music though in my opinion. Larger bi/dipoles maybe different, but I can't be certain.

    These might work for you: http://www.avland.co.uk/jbl/e10/e10.htm and they are within budget.

    Second that :D

    What I have heard is that for a 7.1 setup the best options are bipoles in the sides with mono poles in the rear. IM looking for a cheap(ish) pair of mono poles (maybe the baby evos) to try it out and see. Bipoles are not the best for multi-channel music. I know.

    Yeah, that's a typo. Go here for the manufacturers site.

    I think I might get those JBL's to replace the Elacs I'm currently using for SBL and SBR.

    Ive just bought some Energy Cr3 surrounds from the nice guys at Sevenoaks Newcastle, they are di-pole and bi-pole. Nice reviews.

    Got them for a really good price :D bargains much cheapness :thumbsup:
    Try your local Sevenoaks see if they have any.
