i.e. ones that are invisible... For anyone with a wife and toddler, you'll know the old argument well... "Why do we have to have all these speakers all over the lounge???!". "Because they sound great" somehow never cuts the mustard, apparently they should be heard and not seen. I've now finally agreed to investigate the alternatives... My main speakers are my beloved Ruark Crusaders. My centre, sub and rears are far more low-end, being a Paradigm CC-150, MJA Pro 50 and Yamaha NSE-105's. I use them for both hi-fi and home-cinema uses. But all-in-all, they integrate well in my room and I'm very happy with the sound, so I'm dreading having to make any change. There will be tears if/when the Ruarks have to go. I know this is a difficult question to answer, but given a reasonable budget of say £2000 ish, what are my options? Ideally the main/centre/rear speakers would be flatish and wall-mountable (like the Mission/Denon NXTs) with room for a reasonably sized sub. I don't mind second-hand, or even DIY kits, but they MUST MUST MUST sound good for both home-cinema and more standard hi-fi. Is it possible to get a speaker package which is both small/discrete and sounds great to boot? I've heard some sub-sat systems and they just sound thin and un-musical. Or am I embarking on Mission Impossible?
