    I currently have a pair of M&K S85 speakers on wall-mounted brackets, either side of my TV. I'm worried that my 2-year-old may bang her head against them (or decide to try to hang off the bracket), and was wondering if there are decent on-wall alternatives that may be safer.

    A bit of research shows me the following:
    • ATC HTS7 (£475/ea)
    • XTZ Spirit 2 (£360/pr)
    • XTZ 95.22 (£700/pr)

    They will be driven by an Arcam Alpha 10, and the bass supplied by an SVS 20-39 PC-plus.

    Does anyone have any experience of these, or recommendations for other speakers up to around £1k/pr?

    Will they be a downgrade sound-wise compared to the M&K's?

    Monitor audio apex a40 or B&w fpm6. I have the B&w which have nautilus tweeters and two 5” kevker woofers, I like them.
