    Hi i am new to this forum.
    I am also new to AV stuff.

    Just wanted to post something about the Epos Epics which might help someone else in making a choice.

    My original set up being Pioneer 915 amp with Whafedale 9.1's fronts 9cc Centre and 9.0 surrounds
    I then Changed the Amp to the Onkyo NR-609. WOW what a massive improvement in terms of sound quality and functionality

    A couple of days after getting the new amp i decided i 'needed' :laugh: a new set of fronts....

    I was looking at the Tannoy V4's, M16i, M12i and B&W in the £300-£500 range

    I went to superfi and audtioned all of the speaker that were available and the Epos Epics came out on top and by far.
    I tested them against the m12i's first which sounded well rounded but had some harsh highs/treble with some track. I then tested the B&W's 685's which i thought sounded great until i listened to the EPICS the music instantly sounded alive, each instrument had its own space.

    I have had them running for approx. 15 hours now with a mix of movies and stereo audio and they sound fantastic.

    The only downside i can see is that if they are not driven hard enough they dont really sound all that good. I tested them out on my old Pioneer amp and they sounded so so.

    Welcome to the forum. Nice to hear from an epos owner they dont get much coverage on here. How are you finding having a difference center speaker to the fronts for watching movies?
