    Hello Mate

    Dynaudio are fine for home cinema but I think its important to use the right centre and rears for a good tonal match. I've just got back from my local dealer and he says that Audio T is one of the only places in the area to sell Dynaudio. The ideal centre for your speakers would be the c42, you might also want to consider the bigger c120 which the Basingstoke branch have for £300 down from £439. This would be excellent if you put your 40's at the back and got bigger fronts, either the 50, 60 or 70's. By the way, what are you using for your rears? Incidently on another subject you also mentioned that you were intending to upgrade to the Yamaha AX1. There is one being advertised in the classifieds section here on this site for £950. The Dynaudios are very musical speakers and I don't think the Yamaha would be as good as say a Denon A10se, which you can also pick up at Audio T for £899 Ex demo (maybe more discount for buying this & speakers). Add the power amp for surround ex when funds allow. Even better if you can go the extra, wait for the Denon A11sr for around £1400. All seven channels of amplification built in and Dolby Prologic 2 to name but a few extra features. I think this would be a better bet than the Yammy, especially for music. If you decide to get the Dynaudio, my dealer says he knows the manager of Audio T and will see if he can get you a better deal, you know where I am so give me a call. What Tannoy Centre is it as I might know someone who is after one. Congratulations on your sky compensation. £68 is the biggest refund I think I've seen sky give so far!

    Tim ,<br />Thanx for the advice I visited the Dynaudio web site today and having read the literature both speakers you mentioned as a centre look very good. By the way my Tanoy is a Model 623 with the tweeter mounted in the centre of the main speaker.One of the main reasons that I need to change is the fact that I also purchased a Optimum TV unit with 230mm legs . Would you believe it the Tanoy is a fraction to big to fit under the TV . At present it is to the rear of the TV on a shelf which is not ideal . My rears are a pair of Cannon S30 which in my opinion do not handle a 5.1 set up very well . I have toyed with placing the Audience 40 to the rear ,but what to replace them with that the wife will accept.She hates floor standers unless made out of very nice wood . Dynaudio sound great but I dont know about their wood finish .

    The Audience series is not covered with a real-wood veneer, just cheap vinyl wrapping - a surprise at the price but Dynaudio thinks sound comes first - and who are we too argue?

    Else the Contour series (real wood) would make some very nice and serious setup, but unfortunately they do cost a lot more and would surely be wasted on an integrated AV amp. Dream ... <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">
