    Anybody has these speakers? I'm really interested in purchasing it at an offer price of 169.99 but is it any good for both music and av?

    you wont be disappointed , I have been using these as main left/right along with MA centre, rears and sub.

    tried them against loads of different brands including the bigger 5i's and they just sounded better (to me).

    In fact I was selling them but as hifibitz are now doing them for £169.99 I thought i might as well keep them for a second system.
    Saying that my brother has nicked them from me as he prefers the sound to his B&W's which cost him about £400 a year or so ago.

    I have a Marantz PM4000 and a Yamaha RXV520rds.
    Currently i have a set of tannoy mx2 and a wharfedale 8.1 but i've ordered the MA silver 3i from hifibitz and going to use either the tannoy or wharfedale as rears. My centre is a mission m7c1.
    I know i should use same model for all the speakers but i can't afford an MA centre.
    Which B&W does your bro has? is it the 601 s3. My friend's got that one and he keeps on bragging to me about it. I wish this silver 3i is better than his b&w. That will shut his mouth :)

    they are different to the B&W's , i wouldnt say better. i personally prefer them.
    he hasn't got the 601, i think it is the 602 or maybe the one that was before that.

    anyway , hope you enjoy them.
