looking for some opinions - i'm trying to put together a home theatre system with reasonable music performance. my situation: - small living room (4m by 5m) - tv and couch opposite each other on the long walls - love watching dvd's but would expect that we would use the system for music listening at least 50% of the time - want dpl II - don't care all that much about having more than 5.1 - don't need to go too loud i've listened to and been impressed by b&w 600 series bookshelf/standmounts - esp 602s3 - driven by marantz (sr4300), and thought pretty hard about having them as my mains. preferred over similar jamo, sonique, aarons. obviously i've got a lot more listening to do - plan to hear the quad 11s and some wharfdales this week (i'm in Australia so a couple of those brands are probably unfamiliar (and rightly so to my ears)) it seems i can get hold of the previous model marantz (sr4200) for $AU700 - at the expense of 6.1, dvd-a/sacd inputs and a few watts/channel. the biggest spanner in the works is the WAF - the b&w's are big standmounts and from what i read like to live with a little breathing space (from the wall). she finds any box ugly, let alone a larger bookshelf or standmount, and much prefers the b&w vm1's. i guess i'm asking a few questions 1) has any one heard the vm1s (with subwoofer) and what did you think of them? 2) am i just going to have to bite the bullet and either accept substandard acoustics and pretty speakers? is there a better compromise? 3) any opinions on the sr4200/b&w dm602s3 combo? is the marantz up to driving them without straining during 5.1? i focussed on music in the show room. 4) other speaker options(circa $AU1000-1200 tops) the austalian peso is worth about 38 pence so we are talkin around 400 pounds thanks in advance!
