Im looking to build a good/entry level 5.1 system and I need to buy two main floorstanders and a central for around £200-250. Im considering the speakers listed below. Id appreciate any opinions/help you might have: 1. Tannoy R2 with MX Central (might be able to snatch the R2 at £180 ex demo and the central at £50) 2. Tannoy Fusion 3 with Fusion C 3. Kef Cresta 30 with Coda 80 as central (not too keen on the color of the Cresta but its not the main factor + probably not much sense to have central better then mains) 4. Gale 3030 or Celestion F30 with relative central (RicherSounds offered me these solutions saying that both Gale and Celestion are better then the Kef Cresta 30 however Ive never heard these two brands and I doubt this opinion, although the Cresta 30 might be an old model) Further considerations (not in specific order): · Ive got a pair of Tannoy Mx2 that I would use as rears · I would use speakers for both music and films · I dont like the look of the Mordaunt Short and therefore Im not including them in the options. · Ampli is Yamaha RXV 350 · I could get all the above solutions for around £200-250 and would like to remain in this range · I tried to demo some speakers but not all of them were available · In theory Id prefer to opt for a central with a max 14 cm height (that include the Coda, and the Celestion) but probably exclude all the others · Room size: apprx 6m x 5m (something like 19x16 not too sure though) · Sub: considering taking the powerbuy offer on the Velodyne CHT-8 Sorry for the long thread but I would really appreciate if you could provide your opinions on the following: a. which option would you choose and why? b. Which combination would you chose to accommodate the 14cm height on the central (i.e. R2 and Coda? most expensive solution though) c. Which one you would exclude and why d. Any other alternatives (excluding used for the time being) Thanks a lot, P.
