    I am a complete newbie but would appreciate , any comments.

    I am just moving into a flat which has a room of about 23 ftx 15.5 ft , so ideally i would like to get a 50" Pio 504 HDE on a table and stand.

    I would be sitting approx 12.5 ft from Plasma is this ok ?

    As this is an open plan room, and i have to look at a very wife friendly AV setup, so have chosen the following sytem for the balance of my budget,

    Pio 668 DVD/HDMI+ Pio 501 receiver 6x 100 watts RMS + Mission FS6.1 AV + stands approx £1.5k

    My total budget is about 7K,

    Pio 504 HDE+stand+ Alphason table is approx £5.5 k

    Have looked at Kef eggs , but on stands they look a bit out of place , and outside budget

    iI also need to blend into a fairly neutral colour scheme

    My primary listening is going to be DVD+TV, with occassional Music from Norah Jones, Joan Armatrading, Fletewoodmac+ classical,

    Would the soundstage be reasonably coherent, i am looking for no real sweet spot as i like to be immersed in sound, but would also like a fairly well defined soundstage ion MOvies

    Any advice would be very helpful ?

    Thanks

    Mike

    Well, I have a similar set up.

    504, 868, AX5 & FS1 (5.1) bought the Missions 'cos they were very "wife friendly" & I actually DO like the sound stage they produce.So no regrets at all! (I have a separate set of 770's + amp & CD player for cd & records.)

    BTW, if you want, I have an unopened desktop stand for the 504, so pm me if you are interested.

    Regards,

    B.

    Well, I am also planning a similar setup
    Pio 504 - should get it tomorrow - safely I hope
    Pio 868
    Pio Ax5i
    Kef 5005 - they get good reviews, wife friendly and IMHO definetly look better than the eggs (much less intrusive I think)
