    Hi everyone,

    Ever since I have bought my projector, my interest in home cinema has been re-kindled and I seem to be spending loads of money. I am now looking at speakers and once again need your guidance please.

    Richer Sounds offer some great deals and to try an narrow it down a bit, all of the below are taken from their website or their What Hifi Sound + Vision pages:

    Option 1 - Mordaunt-Short Premiere - £299.95 - for 5 speakers and a sub this looks very good value :) .

    Option 2 - Mordaunt-Short Premiere Plus - £399.95 (Is the only difference between this and the standard Premiere system the different sub ? Is it worth the extra ? are either any good ?

    Option 3 - Celestion F10 for front + back - £109.95 / pair
    - Celestion F35C for centre - £79.95
    (I do like the dark apple finish to these speakers but I guess I will be listening to them more than looking at them so sounds is obviously the most important factor).

    Option 4 - Gale 3010 for front - £49.95 / pair.
    - Gale 3060 bi-polar for rear - £79.95 / pair
    - Gale 3050C for centre - £79.95

    For options 3 + 4 I would be retaining my existing Yamaha sub for the time being.

    (1) Which of the above is the best please ?
    (2) Are any of them really any good or should I be looking at something else instead ?
    (3) Will the selected individual speakers in options 3 + 4 work well together or are they mismatched ?

    As always thanks in advance for any advice offered

    Have you considered the Canton CD1 setup that is being raved about?

    Option2 : the 309 is supposed to be signidicantly better than the 308.

    Is it for movies only or music as well?
