Scenario - Wife who hates speakers and thinks the best sp configuration is behind the setee! Me techno-file ! married to speaker hater for 33 years - so no options for swap-out there! Just auditioned meridian G91 + dsp 5000MkII digital actives (CDs absolutely awsome sound - DVD - teriffic!) with forlorn hope that might get this one past her this time! problem - Speakers are huge monoliths (for our room)! - Marriage breaker if I insisted on putting them each side of telly! - so use it for Hi-fi CD only in a different room?? - na, missus said speakers wrong colour! Doesn't match the Oak furniture - bummer - meridian don't seem to make an oak version! Luv to keep it - but.... Any one got suggestions for a hi-fi sysem that will match the sound I got from the meridians (brill - loved their clarity), but maybe with better-looking or smaller speakers - and/or ones with a large variety of finishes? Please help - please!
