    I have a 2-ch hifi of an Arcam A85 Amp, Cyrus CD7Q and Quad 11l speakers and am going to add multichannel, predominantly for DVDs. I am probably going to get the quad centre although I will to try to listen to the Wharfedal Evo Centre in my setup as I understand they use simiair drivers (is the likely to be a good match?)

    My main question concerns the rears. I don't have room for a pair of 11ls and I am looking for something to wallmount, be it a sattelite or something like the mission m7ds. Any suggestions? I would also like any positioning tips for the rears in a relatively small room (4m x 3m) with the sofe opposite the tv in the middle of the longer wall with the tv in the opposite corner.

    Incidentally, I will probably go for a Pioneer VSX912 to provide the processing and power the rears and centre.

    Many thanks

    Paul

    Are you wanting Standard rears or Bipole or Tripole do they do now?
    I would recommend the Eltax HT-Bipolar for a quick fix, however they may not match the rest off your system, and you could get a right mix off speakers - not brill...
    By the sounds of it your after some top notch rears to match an excellent front set, in which case I don't think I can help.
    Whether your looking for Bipole etc... will probably help future posters with help however...

    I am not exactly sure about the specific difference between Di- and Bi-polars. I will have a search on the forum but any help here would be useful along with recommendations for both types.

    Cheers

    You could get a pair of the new Monitor Audio Radius 90's. They do some lovely wood finishes that would go well with the Quads, and they sound great as well.
