    About to buy this set up. probably been asked before, but I cant find any reference to it, so I will ask again.
    Anyone out there got this speaker kit.? If yes, can I get an opinion please.

    I am currently using -

    Sony DVPS735D
    Sony STRDB870 Rec'
    Mission stancette stands

    Also, I would like some advice on rear speaker placement. Room is a fairly long, although almost square room. So, Side, corners, or behind? and how far up.

    Are the fronts magnetically shielded, and what is the minimum distance/maximum disatnce I can keep them apart.? ie, either side of te TV.

    thanks,

    Captain Benefit.

    I am currently using the Mision M73 fronts along with the M7DS rears and am awaiting delivery of the M7C2 centre.
    On that point I would suggest getting the M7C2 as opposed to the M7C1 that comes in the M72 package,this makes it tricky I know but the M7C2 is considerded to be a much better match to the M72's.
    Maybe someone is willing to sell you a package based on the C2 centre instead of the C1,failing that buy them as seperates.
    Try www.discounttv.co.uk as they do all the speakers and may be willing to do you a package price based on what you want.
    As far as rear placement is concerned I have them to the sides at ear height when seated.
    The M73's are listed as being magnetically shielded but I dont know if that applies to the smaller ones in the range.
    Anything else let me know and I will try to help.

    Yep the Missions M7 series are magneticly shielded.

    I have Mission M73's and they can be right nere the Television with no problems.

    I have the M7c2 and it is 100% recommended by me, it is light years better the m7c1.

    I have the M72 package which work's very well with my SR5200

    The Rears are to the side about 1mtr above ear Height (to please the Mrs)

    I'm still using the Old center , you won't be dissapointed

    Don't make the mistake I did however and buy a cheap sub , wait , save and get yourself a REL

    The Mission M70 series is definetly one of the best budget speaker series out there, and way out perform their price tags. You can't go wrong with them.

    I received my M7C2 today an although it is better then the old Wharfedale Valdus I was using its not the "big" difference I was hoping I might hear.
    Still,it now forms part of a matching set and for me that covers half of the cost alone!

    Also went to the bank today to get a statement and found it cost me £10 less than I had thought.

    The M7C2 is nice but the extra £40 for the M5C is worth it imo.
    If your short on height shelf space the M5C is not as tall as the M7C2 but its a long bugger :)

    Yeah, but then the centre speaker will not match the fronts tonally....they have different tweeters.
