    Hi all

    The time has come to replace my 'old' sony rear speakers that were just filling a spot until the upgrade could be financed.
    System so far :-
    Ms 304 front
    Ms 302 surrounds
    Ms 309 Sub

    Pio 814 Amp

    So far I have thought about maybe just getting some more ms302's but considered Ms903s for the rears.
    Question, will the extra cost of the 903's be worthwhile ? or can anybody surggest anything else with a budget up to £150 ( hopefully not to big a speaker )

    Many thanks for any advice...

    Do yourself a big favor. Try your current set up in 5.1. In most rooms 5.1 can, in fact, be better than 7.1. And you may save some money and end up with a more enjoyable movie and music experience. If you decide to go with 7.1, use the "better" speakers in the rear. Spend the extra money on source components.

    NO man, my bad. I misunderstood your plan. In this hobby there is only one rule. Compute what you can afford and spend twice as much, then you are never disappointed! With this logic in mind, I would buy the better of the 2 you are considering and when you upgrade again in a few months you won't have to worry about the rears. Good luck in your choice! :smashin:
