    Hello,
    I would just like to ask for some opinions on the above speakers by m&k,has anyone heard them? as i am thinking of investing in these.
    I have heard that they are really good with movies which is what i am after as i am happy with my hifi setup.
    I would appreciate your help.
    Thanks in advance

    All M&K speakers are mainly aimed at the AV market but they are not to everyone's taste. Personally I think that they are brilliant but not everyone likes such an analytical sound.

    Hi Recruit
    I have my 850 series front three for sale in the classifieds for 900 quid if your intrested and yes they are fantastic with movies less so with music thats the reason i want to change them as i listen to more music than i watch movies.
    Cheers Gonzo.

    Hi Gonzo,
    Sorry i have not got back sooner but have been working,I also have arranged for a demo of the 850 Speakers this sunday so i will probably have a good listen and think about it if they are still availible.
    The PROAC D15's sound really good with music i have had mine about 4 months now and am so pleased i bought them,a good investment IMHO. :)
