New surround options

After spending £2500 on new fronts and sub I am re-assessing my surround speakers.
At present I am using 4 Mission M7D's. I have been fancying M&K's K4 Tripoles, but I have now possibly got an opportunity to purchase a pair of B&W DS6 THX certified dipoles for around £200.
I would be using the new tripoles or dipoles on the L&R surrounds and keeping a pair of my M7D bipoles for by back surrounds.

Any thoughts would be appreciated guys.
Cheers.

I'm pretty sure that the DS6 is limited to Pro-logic in bandwidth.
Something like 7-8khz top end only.

Have you checked the B&W site they used to have a past products page?

Thanks. I just checked the B&W site and their top end does only go up to 8kHz. Shame.:(
Just looking at some specs for the K4's and they are a lot bigger than I thought, particularly in depth. I'm not sure if Mrs Stella would aprove.
Why can't anything in life be simple?:confused:

I've seen a pair of K-4's at another forum members place. I'm suprised you thought them to be big, i thought they were very discreet, especially in white.

Lovely speakers too :smashin:

Maybe I interpreted the measurements as inches when they were meant to be cm or something?
I'll have to try and get a look at some somewhere.

I am trying to find a price for the new DS6 S3 and the DS7 but I'm not having any look. What are these things retailing at these days?

Cheers Steve.
Looks like I was probably thinking centimetres.
Anyway, you've just ruled out the K4's for me by pointing out the impedance. My Pioneer 2011 doesn't reccomend speakers rated under 8 ohms.:suicide:

Has anyone heard the Kef Q2ds?
They look promising and should be a decent match for my Kef KHT 9000's.

What hi-fi gave the Q7 package a best buy star and said that the Q2ds were very good.

If not I have a pair of Kef 65ds for sale in the classifieds or a pair of Q7s if you really what some punch:D
