    I currently have a pair of MA Radius 270 for fronts and an MA Apex A40 for centre duties - I'm currently looking to add a pair of rear speakers to complete the 5.1 for now with a view to adding Atmos speakers in the near future.

    I've been thinking about getting some Apex A10s to replace the Radius 270s and another pair for the rear but don't want to spend £1200 and they don't seem to come up for sale very often second user. I'm aware that matching the rear speakers isn't as important as maching the front 3 and with this in mind, are there any other speakers i could look at for the rears?

    Personally I would always want matching speakers all the way around. That said if you are running the Apex and Radius speakers up the front with no issues then why not get some Radius speakers for the rears (like the R180 etc.).

    1200 is just the list price for four A10. Call a dealer and ask for 900. Some dealers are getting a bit reluctant about shipping monitor audio so best to use someone local like Sevenoaks.
