    Mission cinema 77 package looks very good.

    [Daft remark deleted by admin.]

    (dont quote me on that, Its not factual)

    [Well why did you write it, then?!!! - admin]

    I would get the cinema 77 if you can get it..

    I have heard FS2, and im not impressed, it sounds really cheap. It has lots of bass and treble, but the mid gets abit lost.

    Im not very keen on packages that has tiny sattalite speakers and a sub. They will NEVER sound as good as having some full range speakers.

    I would get some full range speakers like in the cinema 77 package, and get a good sub later, if you need one....

    Its more of a long term investment in my opinion.

    But if space is tight, go for a package.

    You've got a slight problem here mate because everyone is going to tell you to get the system that they've got! :rolleyes: :)

    I've got the FS2 (2 sets for 7.1 sound) and the sound IMHO is fantastic! They're also great if you've got 'wife factor' or dont want huge ugly boxes all around your room, I've painted the plastic cases and covered the grills and they disapear into the walls, together with the flat speaker cable and hang on the wall plasma. Dont be fooled by their size as the whole system can really wobble the house!
    But dont take my word for it (or anyone elses for that matter), you really have to audition them (if you can) for yourself and make up your own mind. If you go to www.empiredirect.co.uk you can get the FS2 for about £360. Another thing you might want to consider is that you can upgrade the FS2's with another set later on, if you do this you can use 2 of the panels for back speakers then use the remaining 3 to 'double up' the front l/r and centre, you also then have 2 subs.
    I think though if you're on a budget, you cant really go wrong with either set or any of the Mission stuff because it's all pretty good.
    Good luck!

    I reported your post to admin as it was a stupid comment to make. You made a derogatory comment then followed it up by saying "don't quote me on that, it's not factual"

    If it's not factual, don't post it.
