    okay ,a little help needed please
    i have just recieved my new front speakers
    kef tdm23f L&R
    kef tdm23c
    my rear speakers i have had a couple of years
    jamo surround 300
    should i bear with these or would i get an improvement from mission surrounds or others
    the matching rears for my fronts would be to big so i need something discreet looking(hence thinking of the missions)
    any help would be great
    thanks

    I doubt whether you would get any noticeable increase in quality by moving to Mission as they are about the same quality level as the Jamo that you already have.

    I would stick with them unles you change to the KEF TDM speakers which are of much higher quality as well as being a tonal match for your fronts.

    I ran fairly expensive M&K speakers at the front and much cheaper Missions at the rear for quite a while and whilst there was a noticeable difference when I bought a more appropriate pair of rears, the difference was nowhere near as pronounced as adding a decent subwoofer.

    I bought a pair of M&K K4 from the classifieds here which work very well with my M&K fronts. The soundstage is much more enveloping now which I put down to them being much better speakers rather than being a better tonal match.

    I even play SACD and DVDA now which sound a whole lot better than before.
