    Hello all,

    I'm quite new to this forum but been browsing it for quite a while now. Looking for some advice and hints on the best speaker setup and subs to get for the money.

    I'm currently looking at B&W DM 600 fronts and rear, LCR60 (centre) and REL Quake for the sub. Choices really were narrowed down for space and quality and the best I can get for the budget (I hope) ;) .

    My question is, does anyone have a similar or something similar to this setup? And your thoughts? :lease: What's it like on movies?

    I have a YAMAHA RXV640 (hopefuly enough) to run these babies :D

    I'm going to be demo-ing these guys this weekend and hopefully will make a decision then.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks
    LearningCurve :D

    I'd seriously consider the BK XLS200 sub and the Mordaunt Short 309 sub. If you do a search you'll find plenty of information on them including a direct comparison that a few of us did!

    Otherwise I'm not familiar with your choice of equipment but the magazines seem to like it :)

    Naaaaaaaaah....

    go with a Rel Quake!
    Unbelieveable grunt from such a tiny sub.
    Works well with movies and music.

    Not completely familiar with that setup but have a set of 5 B&W VM1's with a Rel Quake and am more than pleased with them and they weren't too expensive (£125 each but got a bit of a deal so a bit less than that. I think I got the Rel for about £300ish). The B&W's are fixed on the walls with the supplied brackets and are very discrete - even my wife was happy with them!

    I wasn't too happy when I originally bought it all as the sub didn't seem to be performing very well, but recently got a curved sofa and put the Rel behind that (in the corner) and 'Oh my god!' what a difference. I can't believe how good it sounds - 100 times better than when it was standing in a corner 'out in the open'...It really pays to move it around and experiment.

    Hope this helps,
    Dave.
