    I've got a Marantz SR4300 and have got Mission M73's coming tomorrow as my fronts. I don't have anything in mind for the front centre at the moment (but feel free to recommend).

    The trouble is the rears. My wife want's the rears to be unobtrusive as possible. How small can I go without sacrificing quality?

    Cheers,

    Paul.

    Sorry but I can't help you at all except for suggesting you check out Mission centre speakers as a must to match your fronts.

    BUT

    The header for this thread made me laff so much I just had to reply!!!

    Isn't it what they all want!

    Checkout the Missions as PP, also Richer Sounds have several bipoles on their site, good price as well.

    Really good idea to stick with the same make. I have recently changed my 'mixture' to Missions all round, and they really do sound better.

    The suggested ideal setup would be for identical speakers all round, but I for one was unable to fit a 773e under the telly (not shielded anyway), but I did manage to sneak a pair either side of the setee for starters. They then jumped up onto the sidewalls, leaving the rear wall clear for a pair of M5DS centre rears.

    Obtrusive....yep, but the missus is well pleased with the results, but she wernt too happy when she first spotted em..:D

    Just buy her some jewellery..:smoke:

    Thanks for all your replies. Shodan, I'm glad it made you laugh. I didn't realise that it looked a bit odd until after I posted it.

    I'd like to run something past you guys. Is it possible to mount the rears on a wall mounted hook so that I can unhook and hide them when they are not in use?

    As I'm using M73's at the front, I'm looking at sticking to Missions at the rear. What is the difference between the M7DS and the M77DS.

    Thanks,

    Paul.

    Hi,
    I've M7DSs at the sides and they mount via 2 slotted holes so you could unhook them when not required. Just paint the screws the same colour as the wall.

    i have the m73`s as fronts and use the m70`s as rears, wall mounted on brackets. while they aren`t excatly discreet, they are the smallest speaker in the range but still give plenty for their size.
    check out the mission site for their dementions.

    Hi there

    I've got 73's for the front, Silver Mission Centre and M7DS in silver for the rears - my missus said - Where the hell are those supposed to go? - but when they were up she fell in love (not literally) with them

    Definately go for the full Mission set up - mine sounds great.

    Regards MM :hiya:

    I have M73 fronts and use a M72 as the centre speaker. It has exactly the same tweeter and woofer as the floorstanders and is (cabinet volume excluded) identical. Sounds really good too. I only have 5 channels now, but if I go to 6, I already have a matching rear centre, ready to go. :)

    I've got Mission 702e's as my fronts and 700's as my rears.

    I agree, matching speaker ranges really does sound better.

    The 700s aint really that small, but they pack a lot for their size... especially if you set them to small... you can really make em work hard!
