    Hi,
    I have a Arcam Diva AVR100 & Dvd player & Kef Eggs in the sitting room at the moment, I have run cables through to our conservatory (4x4m & tiled roof so really another normal room with a lot of windows) where I want to put two floor standers.

    I have looked at Mission M73, M74, Kef coda, Kef Q series and B & W S2.5, 3 etc
    What would suit this set up (90w on stereo)
    Would the Mission M73/4 be too cheap for the Arcam Amp & Dvd player ?

    Thanks for any help,
    Co.

    You might consider Monitor Audio stuff too.

    I have a pair of Silver 9i floorstanders, hanging off an Arcam CD player and amp and they sound terrific. Much better to my ears than the Mission floorstanders (M73s I think?) with which the kit was demo'ed in the shop.

    The MA Silver range has been updated so you might get a good price on the old models (or alternatively try out the new ones).

    Ruark Preludes are nice and would probably suit the Arcam.

    Make sure you get a demo of a pair of well run-in B&W 603 s3's. :)

    Kef Q3s are lovely as are all the Q range.
    I use these for my fronts - at the moment - but may soon get an itch to upgrade.
