    There is a big price difference between these two packages, does anyone know the difference between them and do you think the difference is justified?

    Thanks

    hi, the plus has a far superior subwoofer, making the whole setup sound better. The satellites are identical, its just the sub. If you're not sure whether to spend the extra on the +, buy the standard Premiere first. If you're happy with it keep it, if not sell the MS308 sub and upgrade to the 309. This 'could' actually save you money :)

    i find the 308 to be pretty dam good for movies, but for music i leave it off, it just doesnt have the detail my floorstanders have.

    If you have a decent pair of floorstanders (or even good standmounts on decent stands) I'd turn the sub off for music irrespective of what it is.

    Is there a difference between speaker stands? The MS stands for the premier cost £80 a pair, which is a bit steep when the whole system only costs £250.
    Can you recomend any other stands that could be used?

    Alphason's AD100 fits fine but I'd really use the MS wall mount we designed for them if you can.
