    I'm thinking of getting the Acoustic Energy EVO 3a package speakers cause I'm thinking these should be good for both surround and stereo sound.

    Will they be?

    Any other suggestions?


    I have seen this speaker set-up for £700 and would consider spending upto £1000.




    Cheers

    B&W 600 series3 offer great sound av and music wise. I had the 602 s3 coupled with the lrc60 center and it coped with everything I threw at it admirably. They look the dogs danglies imo in sorrento finish too. see here:-

    http://www.bwspeakers.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/products.ranges/label/Range 600 Series 3

    You can pick up the 602 for around £300, the lrc60 for £200 and for rears you could use the 600's for £200. (Total £800). I use/used my old mission rears (see sig) as it's not essential to have the rears the same make and they appear to match nicely anyhow (to my ear). You can pick the missions up for around £130 see here:-

    http://www.qed-uk.com/?i=0-Hcf13RA9ki&vp=6&bg=216&bp=7db&bi=0.

    that'd total £630 with the mission rears leaving £370 for a subwoofer. Sub wise I'm biased towards the velodyne cht-10 that you can pick up for around £325.
    That'd be a very nice sounding set up imo and within your budget nicely.
    Don't forget to factor in good cables and interconnects.
    You didn't mention what amp would be driving the speakers so you should make sure it can cope ok with the speakers you'll be buying.:smashin:

    Only a newbie me, but I got myself a full set of Missions and I'm well pleased. M74i(Front) M72i(Rear) M7C2(Center) & MS10(Sub). Sound great with whatever I throw at em. All came to just over £800. Maybe I would think differently If I heard others but I aint got no complaints. They have more than exceeded expectations. Driven by a Pioneer 1011.
