This thread really spawned off another one but thought it more appropriate to post here as my big decision is speakers. Which speakers ? Mission FS1-AV : I like the look of the Mission FS1-AV but would it do justice to a :- Pioneer VSX-AX5i Pioneer DV-868AVi Pioneer 434HDE (I'm also thinking about the Philips DVDR 755 but think this is only out in the states and haven't heard reviews of it) B&W VM1 : From a post on another thread I've also been thinking about B&W VM1 - but read in WhatHiFI "excellent, but newer rivals have eclipsed it" Which new rivals ? Infinity Oreus : Did consider Infinity Oreus but other members have suggested that this would not balance the above system that well. Basically I'd like something a) that balances the above system well b) with thin stylish speakers (in particular front centre should have height < 12cm (maybe 13) and depth < 14cm (eg. like Mission FS1-AV) [I know that sounds a bit particular but it needs to fit between my plasma and the top of the fireplace !) c) in the price range of £700 - £1000 (or maybe a tad over) including stands for speakers Any ideas ?
