    Hi, Im looking to buy a yammy dsp e800 to go with my Marantz Pm 66SE KI Sig. amp. I need some rear speakers and a centre to go with my existing Heybrook Heylos. I like the sound of the halos and would like to keep them as my front pair. Ive only got about 300 to 350 for twor rears and a centre. I cant afford a sub yet but the heylos go quite low. My room measures about 6m by 4.5m. Any ideas? I dont know where to start!:confused:

    Depending on the price of the E800, have you considered the DSPAX620 for £199 from Richer Sounds.
    Does everything the E800 does, plus a bit more. You can use it in exactly the same way as the E800 if you want.
    Be quick though - I doubt they'll last long (if they still have any at all that is)

    Can't really recommend any speakers as a partciularly good match for your Heylos, as I've never heard them and don't know anything about them - plus you didn't mention what sort of size/finish/type of speakers you'd like.
    Homecinemaheaven do Heybrook speakers, but if they aren't from the same range, then it's no better than buying from another manufacturer really - they are supposed to be pretty good, but I've never heard them.

    With £350 though for a centre and a pair of rears, you do have a wide choice - special offers etc mean you can pick up a decent centre and rears for little more than £100 now if you want.
    With a reasonable size room like yours though, and with no subwoofer to help out, I'd avoid very small rears if I were you - they may sound a bit weedy.
    That said, there's probably no need for a great big pair of floorstanders at the back either :)
    As I said, there's a big choice, but have a look at the Wharfedale Diamond Centre and a pair of 8.2s for the rears.
