    I've currently got a Kef 5.1 speaker setup, with Bi-Polars at the rear, and I've just bought a s/h Denon 3802. I will want to use the full 7.1 channel output so what do you recommend for this requirement?

    Funds are very tight as I've spent a small fortune on my HC lately. I've had a look on RS and I see there is a couple of Eltax Bi-Polars but would these confuse the soundstage? Would I be better off getting the Eltax Symphonies? Or maybe the Kef Cresta 1 or 2?

    Thanks for any advice

    Move the bi-poles to the sides and get a pair of Cresta 1's for the centre rear.

    I'd go with what Nobber22 has suggested, Kef Cresta's were only about 50 quid a pair at RS.
