    Hi all :hiya:

    At the moment I have a:
    Toshiba 32ZP18Q Picture Frame TV
    TOSHIBA SD-120E [RGB Component]]
    X-Box (Mod) [Scart]
    Sky Digital (Grundig) [RGB Scart]
    Toshiba VHS (top range few years ago) [Scart]
    Generally happy with the system. However now want to move slightly more serious in the setup stakes. Hopefully moving soon so going to get a Panasonic TH-42pv500 when we do.

    With Superfi dropping the price of the YAMAHA RXV457 to £150 the plastic fantastic magically appeared in my hand.
    Then on eBay spotted some Mission FS2-AV NXT flat panel surround sound speakers and the plastic took another hit :suicide: I think it was the look that convinced me.

    So have I done the right thing?

    The only thing you maybe should have done was listen to the speakers and amp combi first. You never know until you get it all rigged up together and see if you like the sound.

    Basically dont worry you have got 2 nice pieces of kit that will look good and last for a few years and leave you with an easy upgrade path later.

    I had the missions, and i found the sound very bland that lacked depth.

    I got rid as they didn't suit my taste. Many people like them. i changed for the cantons on the forum here, with a pioneer amp, and it is fantastic.

    Keep us posted on whether you like the setup.

    You can tell us latter if you have done the right thing ,i also listend to the missions and didn't like them ,but i was used to larger speakers.
    If this is your first step into surround sound i'm sure you will be impressed.
