    I am looking for a pair of reasonably discrete rear speakers.

    I currently have B&W 603S3 fronts, LCR60 centres and Mission M7DS rears. In my new place, I cannot mount the M7DS on the walls, so am looking for something that is stand mountable.

    Has anyone seens any decent stands for the M7DS, or woudl I be better off going for a smaller speaker altogether?

    assuming you can put the stands next to the wall, just buy a pair of high stands (Gale make some i think, should be fairly cheap), blutack a piece of board to them and put the missions on the board so they are backed up against the wall as if being hung...

    Given that even if you get new rear speakers, you'll still need stands, I'd try a set of stands for your Mission surrounds first.

    You can get a pair of 1.1m adjustable rear stands from Argos for £20-30 - something like

    Bottom line is that if you buy the right stands (and from what you've said, you'll need some whatever you use as rear speakers) you can try them with your M7DS - if you don't like the look, you can use the stands with some other discrete rear speaker - perhaps those dinky little Mordaunt Short Premieres!
