Soon to be buying a NAD T778 and I currently have Misson M35 that are showing some mileage. Which would be a good fit I play 70% Movie material?
Any advice is appreciated!

Thanks

You simply cannot go wrong with Arendals. Take a look at the owners thread, you'll get some traction there.

No one has first hand experience from the 1961 range as it haven´t been released yet. :) 1961 thread here: NEWS: Arendal announces its 1961 speaker range

Generally you can also talk here about any Arendal speakers:

With 70% use being movies you could also consider the 1723 S monitor model which many loves for both movies and music! 100€ price difference to 1961 towers.

Unfortunately, I can't fit the centre channel in the given space that I have. :(

In my living room I only have the Bookshelf L&R with no centre in a 4.1 setup. Works very well for our purposes given the constraints of the room :thumbsup: .

PS If you can, go for the 1723 Tower S. ;)

No need to play at reference levels to appreciate the Improved bass dynamics that the towers offer!

You could run without one. Here is the cheaper 1723 S Bookshelf speakers and the center channel from other brand in the picture isn´t connected. @Elfaron88 said;

" In fact, the bookshelfs are so good, that the "phantom centre" i hear is like having a centre. Even off axis. Im really impressed by the wide soundstage. "
