    Im thinking of getting a Marantz 5400.
    Really want to get mission speakers. Want a floorstander for the front. The rest can be small (ie two rears and one center),
    what would you reccomend? I was thinking of M74i's for fronts.not sure about rest.

    Or was thinking of getting a Mission cinema 73 pack, which has m73i front, m7ds rear and m7c1 centre.

    Or was thinking of getting Mission Cinema M740 pack, which has M74i fronts, m771 rears and m77c centre.

    Any ideas?

    One think to point out gan...

    There's no such speaker range as an m77 range, it's just the 77 range. I'm guessing it's hyperfi you saw that package advertised with too.

    The biggest thing to note is I wouldn't advice matching M7i series fronts (i.e. M74i) with 77 series centres & rears (like the 771 & 77c), as they're not a great tonal match. Just stick with m74i fronts and m7c2 centre, with m7ds surrounds would be my advice.

    If you do decide to get M73 or M74, definatly get the Mission M7c2 is it a far superior center to the poor M7c1.

    I was the first on the forum and one of the first in the UK to get a M7c2, it is the perfect match for the M7 series speakers.
