Ok, I've had a bit of a windfall so I've more or less made up my mind to upgrade to the AV8/P7 (after a demo of course). If I do this though it will pretty much blow my budget for a good few years, however I am also thinking of upgrading my sub and rear speakers (rear speakers straight away, sub soon ish). At the moment I have a pair of Mission 781's for the front and a 78c centre speaker, now I know for some of the audiophiles out there they're not the most expensive speakers, but I loved the sound of the 781's so I got a pair and unless I win the lottery I have no intention of upgrading my front speakers for a while, I also love the look of them and the fact that the 78c sounds great and is nice and small. So, the obvious choice would be to replace my Eltax HT2 bipolars with a pair of Mission 78D rears and then get a replacement sub (I currently have a Paradigm 10), something like an REL would do (not more than £500 though). Now IF I buy the AV8/P7 it's a hell of a lot of money and I want to know that it will drastically improve my listening experience (music and movies) with the kit I have. I would love a set of M&K speakers and may well do that in the future but for now 5.1 with the speakers I've got/getting is all I can have, I'd probably biamp the front channels. so, any comments, is it worth doing or should I just stick with what I've got (avr100/alpha 10p3) and get irritated when I know a DVD can sound much better!
