    All,

    Anyone managed to demo these? Thinking of them instead of the 2005.2 package but read that the midrange ain't so great - don't want vocals in movies to suffer...


    Thanks,

    IMHO sound much better than the KEF Eggs, costs a bit more but well worth it.

    What about in a 6.1 system? I can source an extra SIB, but wonder if the design of the speakers as a 5.1 setup may produce dodgy results in a 6.1 setup?

    Thanks

    No more 'dodgy' or good a result I'd imagine than using any other 5.1 package and adding a 6th satellite.

    It should sound pretty good, I installed a 5.1 system with an Arcam AVR200 2 weeks ago and that sounded great.

    Thanks for the advice Retro - I'm probably going to give them a go. Found a few reviews on the web from various magazines and they seem to rate fairly highly. I prefer the looks to the eggs too.
