    ......I need some valued help from people in the know please! I need rears and a centre speaker and quite frankly I'm clueless........
    ........ this is what I have so far:

    Hitachi C28WF810ON (?) widescreen TV
    Wharfdale 750 DVD player (yes I know, will be replaced in time!)
    Sony SLV-SF90 VCR
    Marantz SR4200 reciever
    NTSC GameCube (dolby pro II out put)
    Wharfdale Modus Eight floor standing front speakers.

    order of pref. for useage:
    1. DVD movies
    2. GameCube
    3. TV
    4. CD

    .....my budget is an embarrasing 150 to 200 quid for these three speakers.
    I'm aware of my need for a sub, and this will be saved for next, but for the sake of my lovely GameCube I need the surround speakers first, plus the whafdales are very loud and bassy for the time being.

    ....another thought I had - if getting rears and centre that dont match the Whafdale fronts is a bad idea - was getting a complete set like the Eltax Liberty for 249.95 from richer sounds.

    would this be a better idea?
    or
    should I just get rear and centre to go with my big warfdales and put the rest aside for a new DVD or sub?
    if so which speakers should I go for?


    all help greatly apreciated!
    thanks!

    It is important that the centre speaker is voice matched to the front stereo pair and for that reason you should consider the Wharfedale Modus Centre.

    Voice matching the surround speakers to the front three is less important ( mine never have) so perhaps the cheapest Wharfedales will suffice.

    Keep an eye on the classified section for second hand buys.

    thanks for the replies guys!

    Its the modus 8's I have, so the mission coment is very interesting indeed......especially as a long search of the interent hasn't really thrown up anyone who sells the warfdale centre.

    ......so next then, which rears would go well here for my budget?

    ....no votes for dumping the wharfdales and getting all 5 of the eltax? HCC seem to rate them.......



    cheers!
