    Hi, I've upgraded all my speakers over the last month and the review in 'What Hi-Fi' for these speakers is what convinced me to do so.

    So i arranged an audtion at 7oaks Hifi, with the B2's and a Bronze Centre and Bronze Rears, when i arrived at the store they informed my they only had the Silver centre!! So i ending audtion the B2's with this centre, the truth being the silver centre just seem to handle the low frequencies much better than the 2 B2 speakers either side. In the end i expanded my budget a bit:rolleyes: , and tried out the S1 and S2 speakers, of which i preferred the S1's, just felt more controlled and sweeter to my ear.

    So while i can recommend the B2's, they had a great sounding treble(MA Specialilty!!) and a real warmth to them. We all have a budget to keep to:nono: , but in my opinion the S1's are well worth the extra and you get £30 worth of free speaker cable as well at 7oaks:smashin:
