I'm trying to build a new home cinema system from scratch - well, have a TV and a Tosh 220e DVD player. I've been encouraged on this forum to choose speakers first, then an amp/receiver to run them. My requirements: Size matters, and I'm looking for good speakers to play music good/better and film good too. I've been pointed towards the Mordaunt Short Premier (£299-400) and Premier Plus (£500) packages, the JMLabs Sib and Cubs (£600-650), and the KEF 2005.2 eggs (£799). Will spend up to £800. I'm looking to get something whose looks will last for a good while (may rule the eggs out, dunno???), sound great, take up relatively little space, and be great value for money. Of these, can anyone comment on which they'd go for? I suppose I'd prefer to pay less, but if the eggs are that good musically AND film wise, then . . . I'm held back by the fact that none of the shops near me here in Northern Ireland carry or demo the Premier Plus pack, or the Sib and Cubs (that I know of). I can demo the eggs, but I'm wondering just how much is gained by moving up the price ladder - i.e., is it worth it to jump up to KEF eggs at £799? (Richer Sounds will order the Prem Plus pack - will take 7-10 days; we'd prefer the black surround on the Sib and Cubs - they're not in Creative Audio for another week or so . . .) Or maybe you have a different solution. I've seen the Mission M30's on their website - look cute, but I can't tell what the grill would be like on front (colour) - that would be important to my wife. Does anyone do a package on these? If so, how would they compare to the above, and to the M3s package - which I see is not based on the M30's. Or, to really mix it up, I've heard that the Aego5's are great (I know they work differently than other speakers, and are perhaps less upgradeable). What do you think? In your answer, perhaps you could suggest an amp/receiver to go with your suggestion (up to £400). I'm told the MS Premiers are hard to drive, but don't know what this means amp/receiver wise. Thanks for any help!!!
