    Any suggestions welcome Current AV set up is
    Paradigm PDR8 sub
    Paradigm CC270 centre
    Gale 3070B rears
    Yam DSP-AX630 A/V amp

    And the speakers I want to replace are the 1980's Jamo's :rotfl: which im using for the fronts, they are far too old ugly and big and I wanted to replace with something a lot smaller and more in keeping with the rest of the kit which has been upgraded over the past year, I already run a set of Mission M74 and Mission Freedoms (1980's again) on my Hi Fi set up and absolutely love the way they compliment each other, so I was looking at maybe some Mission M71's for the fronts. any thoughts / recomendations appreciated, I dont want to screw it up at the final hurdle although some of you may already think ive done so in my choices above;)

    Cheers

    Don't really know too much about speakers, sorry.

    I just wanted to ask your opinion on the Yamaha amp? I am about to get the same model.

    Thanks.

    Hi Techno

    I can only say previous to the Yamaha I had an 8 year old Sony and obviously technology has improved greatly in that time, even still I have always been a fan of Yamaha AV equipment and for what I paid for it, £219 at RS, I cant complain one iota, it is a fantastic piece of kit and I'm well impressed, before buying it I spent a couple of monthsscanning the net and reading through 50 odd reviews of various AV amps with say 10 related to the Yamaha and I didnt read one bad review of the Yam, had a quick listen and was sold, I'm no expert on all things AV and i'm know there are more expensive amps out there but for the money I dont think I could have bought better for a quality build and great sound, the adjustment of all channels and volume is clinical, after all it was originally a £400 piece of kit.

    So Yeah I'm impressed:D

    I hope you can get your hands on one.

    Best of luck
    Dave

    I can never remember which Mission is which so won't comment but I would suggest that you think about getting rid of the Paradigm centre speaker and buying something that will tonally match whatever two front speakers you buy

    IMO the missions are a safe bet, but i would be tempted to go for the m72's if you have the extra space, they're basically a bookshelf version of the m73's and therefore a bit beefier then the 71's.

    Thanks freddie
    Ive looked at the 72's as well, love the M series :D I thought they may be a bit too powerful, but the again the amp is multi adjustable, so I can have a play around.

    Cheers
