    looking to purcahse a separate amp and speakers for my Tosh TV and DVD...decided on the amp (Yamaha DSP-AX640SE), but not sure on speakers. Don't have a lot to spend :( so looking at the Mission FS1 ( my wife likes the look of 'em as well! :clap: ).

    Any one out there in AV world any comments/advice on these speakers?

    Thanks in advance :smashin:

    I have them, combined with a sony STR-DB830, and really like them. They are discreet when wall mounted.

    I'm no audiophile, but they sound good to me. I also have a separate sub from a previous system which I am currently using for LFE, so the FS1 is just doing the main speaker role, but I don't think that makes a big difference.

    I have FS1's for my 7.1 setup. In my opinion they are discrete, very stylish and certainly wife friendly as my missus didn't give the usual grief when they arrived.

    I have no complaints from their performance and whilst I accept that there are better performing speakers out there, the FS1's offer a good balance between style, size and performance.

    I agree, they're excellent for what they do. For outright performance they're better by kef's Eggs and Mission M70 packages, but neither of those are quite so stylish (or cheap).

    Buy with confidence :)
