I was going to go for the Monitor Audio Radius as the guy in Seven oaks said they were a really good speaker but i was kind of thinking about the cost again!! i can get the MA for £75 each and the Kef for £125 each!! thats a fair bit of money difference but the guy said i would get better sound from the MA?

can anyone help me?

I've never seen the monitor audio in-ceilings before. At £75 each they could be just what i need. Any comments on them? :thumbsup:
