    hi Folks
    Having decided to upgrade my speakers as the monitor audio s1 and lcr centre arnt really suitable in there present location which is on top and either side my tv cant fit them anywhere else.Ive been looking at the M&k s85 which arnt ported and would be more suitable for my set up,so would be pleased to hear your opinions.Also i would have to run the s85s with my nad t752 until saved up enough to upgrade the amp.it does say in the nads manual that it will easily drive 4 ohms speakers so thats about it .
    Thanks in advance gonzo.
    PS I can buy the s85s and s85c centre for 1244 quid with a choice of 130 pounds worth of free cables.:)

    The M&K S85 are brilliant speakers although I would say that. They stopped making them some time ago so your supplier is selling off old stock at the full price.

    They do come up on the second market from time to time and are well worth waiting for.

    Most people with S85s who post here seem to be very pleased with them, me included ;).

    They are very neutral with terrific punch.
