    Just moved house and currently i have the kef 2005 speaker package. It has been great in my last house but now i have more space and i want to change the fronts to floor standers. My budget is £400 - £500.
    Any suggestions? I use the system mainly for home cinema but sometimes i still like to play the old cd's.

    Currently looking at the Kef Q3's

    I'm in pretty much the same situation at the moment - looking to replace front speakers with floor standers - I'd recommend a look at the B&W 602.5 Series 3 Speakers (£400ish). I still haven't made my mind up but they've been one of the best I've heard so far. Only problem is that they're not magnetically shielded - will this be a problem for you?

    The other main competitors as you say seem to be the KEF Q3's but I'd be interested to hear if anybody else has some other suggestions in this sort of price range?

    Kelvin :D

    I have heard some brilliant sounds out of the new Mordaunt Short 908 speakers. Very good value for money and they look pretty slick.
