    Ok here is where I am, I am looking to get a complete AV system set up and I was looking at speakers. My OH obviously has some input so we went looking. Here is the problem she doesn't want cables all over the place and she wants them to look nice in our pad.

    The only ones she liked was the Kef 5005's and the Kef FiveTwo (expensive taste!!!). So I was wondering are the FiveTwo's worth considering sound quality wise? I know the 5005's are supposed to be amazing but anyone with them are they as good as everyone says?

    Thanks
    Iain

    The 5005's will sound a lot better, the Five Two's are designed as a solution to a problem. Don't forget there is the wireless option for the rear 5005's.......

    Cheers mate thats pretty much what I thought. If you are spending that amount of money on them you might as well get everything you are paying for.

    Looks like Richer Sounds or someone similar in Glasgow is going to get a whole big chunk of my money, but hey ho it will be great when its sorted. She also thought that the AV receivers were big and ugly, but again liked the Onkyo 875 in black more than the others!!!

    They can be ordered from any authorised Kef dealer but must be collected in person, no mail order allowed on Kef products.

    I've not checked but might be worth looking on fleebday, if there isn't a dealer close by.
